"The bishop is a powerful mage equally skilled in offense, restorative and supportive magicks."

Bishop is a Job in Final Fantasy Tactics A3. It is usable exclusively by the Bangaa, and is their only magic-focused Job. You will have to wait one turn to be able to cause some real damage as a Bishop, because all of their damage spells cost more than 10 MP. However, they can learn Halve MP, which reduces MP cost low enough for them to cast everything but Holy and Break in one turn. The Bishop is unlocked with two White Monk skills. Their decent HP and Highest resistance for their race makes them more durable than other magic-focused Jobs. The Bishop's skillset is versatile, able to do moderate elemental damage, hinders foes, and offers support to allies in the brink of battle. With the arrival of the Trickster, it is quite common to give Tricksters the Intercession secondary A-Ability since their superb Magic growth is somewhat counterbalanced by moves that do not take full advantage of the stat.
