The Bible are certain sacred scriptures of Christianity and Judaism. Different religious groups disagree on exact contents. A major difference is that the Christian Bible consists of the Old Testament and the New Testament, while the Jewish or Hebrew Bible is generally similar to the Old Testament. Different Christian and Jewish groups have further differences.

There are numerous controversies regarding the texts and their interpretations. It is considered politically correct to criticize or satirize Christianity, including the Bible, but it is considered politically incorrect to criticize or satirize Judaism, including later religious texts such as the Talmud, despite building on the Hebrew Bible.
