Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Using The Bible on Isaac, ???, The Lamb, Hush, Mega Satan, Delirium, or Mother has no special effect and does not kill Isaac.
  • Switching active items while The Bible is active does not remove the flight, allowing continued flight until the room is exited.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Bible is a set of Christian scriptures, consisting of 66 books of the Old and New Testaments (73 in Catholic Bibles).
  • The Bible item instantly killing Mom, Mom's Heart, and It Lives is a reference to the epilogue of the Binding of Isaac when the Bible hits Mom's head, knocking out or killing her.
  • In the original Binding of Isaac, using The Bible on Isaac and ??? would kill the player.
  • Added in Afterbirth † This item is one of the only two (Added in Repentance four) in the game that work towards 2 transformations (Bookworm and Seraphim) and is the only activated item that does that. The other ones are Added in Repentance15►Hive Mind Hive Mind, 15►Magic Mushroom Magic Mushroom and Added in Repentance15►Parasitoid Parasitoid.
  • With an ID of 33, The Bible is the very first active item on the ordered ID list, likely due to its plot relevance.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Bug Bug! If The Bible is used on Mom with the Broken Remote trinket, it will not kill Mom and will instead teleport Isaac randomly to another room. However, this still unlocks The Halo as if Mom was killed with the Bible.
