An online encyclopedia, Wikipedia was founded by Jimmy Wales. Meant to be a "free encyclopedia", it has since become a controversial and questionable source of information.
While Wikipedia is good for basic facts, it must be taken with a grain of salt, especially since many of its editors are agenda driven ideologues in one or another way.

Named for the Greek word "Biblios" ("Book") and considered the Holy Book by both Judaism and Christianity (which--at least at its inception--was considered a sect, branch, or spinoff of Judaism named "Messianic Judaism"--regardless of whether it was considered apostate, not-necessarily heretical but still heterodox, or legitimate/orthodox). The parts of the Bible that Normative (Mainstream, Non Messianic) Judaism and Messianic Judaism agree on are the books of Torah, Nevi'im, and Ketuvim--often called Tanakh. Where Judaism and Messianic Judaism divide is the point at which the New Testament (called "Hadashah" for "New" or "News") is eligible to be considered as part of Tanakh (written by some Messianic Jews as "TaNaKH" to include "Hadashah"; written as "TaNaKh" by some Non-Messianic Jews).
A respected or admired book that is not considered a holy book or even a religious text may irreverently or flippantly be called a, or even the, "bible" of its field, subject, or topic of study or exploration. For instance, one might call "The Communist Manifesto" a name such as "The bible of the Far Left," since Communists are very Leftist and subscribe orthodoxly to Karl Marx's and Frederich Engels' ideology as written in "Daas Manifesto".

A reference to the famous and infamous, Puerto Rican-Jewish son of Cruz "Allen" and Lillie "Lillian" Friedman Rivera.

Often controversial, the "Exposing Myself", "HisPanic", and "The Great Progression" author; five-times-married, four-times-divorced dad of five children; and a former lawyer who represented the Young Lords of Spanish Harlem; the ABC News-turned-NBC News-turned-FOX News anchor has never shied away from taboo subjects (including Satanism and Al Capone's vault) or even outright-dangerous situations (including unthinkingly giving away troop positions in Iraq in 2003, right before he was scheduled to marry Erica Levy).

Some have sadly speculated that the 68-year-old "Geraldo at Large" host and FOX News correspondent may also not be in his final marriage in being married to Erica Levy, the daughter of late ADL Regional Chairman Howard A. Levy. Even though Geraldo Rivera converted to Reform Judaism in 2003 by celebrating a second Bar Mitzvah Ceremony with son Gabriel and marrying Erica Levy at Manhattan's Central Synagogue, Rivera has had a record of sleeping with over 1,000 women (including his five wives; all four ex wives of whom he cheated on) and raised concern from some (including some outright-vicious and vile gossips) that his support for the verdict in the Casey Anthony case may be motivated be certain untoward and inappropriate feelings towards the infamous client of Jose Baez.
"What'd you open; an Al Capone? Who are you; Geraldo Rivera?"

Hebrew "Hope".
The Hebrew national anthem is "Tikvateinu" ("Our Hope") or "HaTikvah" ("The Hope").

An Ethnically-Patrilineal and/or -Matrilineal Jew who believes that the historical Jesus of Nazareth (Yeshua HaNotzri) is the Messiah and that the New Testament is a part of TaNaKH(i.e., Torah, Nevi'im, Ketuvim, Hadashah-- literally "New" or "News").
A Messianic Jew does not necessarily keep all 613 mitzvot in the Torah, may not hold the Talmud as part of the Jewish Bible, and may be a member of a church as opposed to a Messianic shul or synagogue. Also called "Jews for Jesus", Messianic Jews are often targeted for persecution by Antimissionaries such as the Antimissionary organization Jews for Judaism.

A literal IV drip filled with caffeine. Apparently, a caffeine drip is not a joke.
I myself can't quit caffeine. I was in withdrawal so badly during surgery that I could not hold down even water as much. They literally had to hook me up to a caffeine drip. The drip rate was two hours instead of one hour because the nurse did not want to blow out my vein.

The Hebrew word for "Holocaust", "Sho'ah" means "Destruction". Contrary to flippant myth, "sho'ah" ("שואה") is never thrown around lightly.
Because of the Nazis' intent on committing ethnocide against the Jewish people, "sho'ah" has come to refer exclusively to the Holocaust ("HaShoah" meaning "The Destruction").
