The Bible commonly refers to the Christian Bible, including Old and New Testaments, but sometimes also the Hebrew Bible--more usually called the Tanach--which consists of (what Christians call) the Old Testament alone. The word "bible" comes from the Greek word biblion, itself derived from biblos, or a papyrus roll; Býblos was a Phoenician port where papyrus was made and exported. Colloquially, a "bible" can be referred to any other definitive literary or informational work for a particular segment of society.
