This Biblical figures category should include anyone mentioned in the Old Testament, the Apocrypha, or the New Testament. We go back to Adam despite the speculative nature of his existence and the widely differing estimates of when he lived.

The better-known figures, where their names are not shared with other people, can have just the names as page title. Where names are shared, some distinction must be made, similar to the dates in parenthesis that we use for less ancient people. For example, a distinction such as "Name (Bible)" or "Name (son of Jacob)" should be considered. Clashes with placenames should be resolved by adding something to the placename, eg Zillah, Yakima County, Washington.
