This job is a story related job used in cut scenes, it serves no purpose in battle as there is no abilities associated with the job. It possesses no Action Abilities, no Reaction Abilities, no Support Abilities, and no Movement Abilities. Curious to say, the developers did take time to give it a job description.

Bishop is exclusive to the bangaa race and is their only magic-based job. Bishops learn a variety of offensive and defensive magic, and can be seen as a variant of the Red Mage job. Due to their religious namesake, Bishops are the only job class that can cast the spell Holy. They also have access to Magic Counter and Half MP.
Bishops now use Intercession skills on the battlefield. They can equip staves, robes, light armor and hats.
Bishops can increase the attack power of nearby units.
The Bishop is a spellcasting job, using Holy Magic to aid allies. Their innate ability Good Measure, makes casting a spell twice on the same target stronger. Bishops are good healers, but unlike White Mages their magic is percentage-based, or removes only a single status effect at a time. They also have no offensive spells of their own, outside of healing the undead back to the grave.
Bishop appears with its Final Fantasy Tactics Advance artwork as an Earth-elemental card.
