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".

Acronym for “Life of the mother”.
Person One: “Okay, dude; most reasonable people are going to agree that abortion can be considered in LOTM cases.”

Person Two: “ But there are some people who think that mothers who would abort their own children to save their own lives are selfish, and a woman in a LOTM case due to—e.g.— uterine cancer is selfish and not trusting that God can overcome the cancer and may even have set her time on this Earth to end in the first place. Let’s also say that – and I know what you’re thinking —”

Person One: “First of all, the mother has to choose whether or not she wants to risk maternal mortality, not to mention risk infant mortality, in the first place. Second of all, she might have other kids whom might need her around—for example, a child with intellectual disabilities. Third of all, she might actually live and end up with postpartum complications—including birthing-affected infertility—and the baby might die, which would add insult to injury. Then what? Besides, just because God can overcome everything doesn’t mean that He always does. ‘God’s will’ is not synonymous with ‘any way you want it’—in other words, the King of Kings is not the ‘Burger King’ shill. Besides, most fast food probably isn’t kosher….debate over. I’m getting hangry.”

Person Two: “I guess that we’re not going to Burger King either way, though.”

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.
