I personally don't know enough about religion to give an example.
But, aren't there sects of Christianity that don't use the King James Version of the Bible? Maybe some even include other Gospels, so to ask a question about Jesus' life without attribution to a particular gospel could raise serious questions.
I think the ISKCON adherents believe that Krishna is the most important god in the pantheon, but Hindus think he is the eighth avatar of Vishnu.
They never get that deep, though. Jesus was born here. Moses talked to this plant. Heck, most of the Bible knowledge you need could probably be handled by watching a Cecil B. DeMille marathon. (Although I'd recommend the talkie version of King of Kings...it's got a totally random John Wayne cameo, too!)
And even on a practical level, clues can only be so long and result in a single short answer (...ideally).
(Now, there was one case I remember where they relied on the KJV translation for a final, I'm sure everyone remembers c/leave, however there was more to that clue to give a hint to the wordplay. Make of that what you will...)
Oop, John Wayne cameo is in Greatest Story Ever Told.
