  • in Arthur's Perfect Christmas, there are many mentions of the Bible such as David Read commenting that he based his food on what people would eat back in ancient Bethlehem when Jesus was born.

  • In Arthur, It's Only Rock and Roll, Mrs. McGrady says "'Render unto Caesar', ya know! But you've rendered unto Caesar too much!" The original phrase ("render unto Caesar") was a quote from Jesus Christ.
  • In Francine's Split Decision, Brain explains that to understand the significance of a bar mitzvah, one would "have to go back to the beginning of the Jewish people, when Abraham and Sarah begat Isaac, who begat Jacob, who begat Joseph, who begat-"
