know someone in a biblical way — to have sexual intercourse [urbandict]

A guy in my group was amused by the story of “be intimate with“. He told me an equivalent phrase: know someone. “Adding ‘in a biblical way‘ makes the meaning more explicit,” he continued to explain, “This phrase is traced back to the biblical story that Adam had a baby with his wife Eve.”

From the King James version of the Bible: “And Adam knew Eve his wife and she conceived and bare Cain and said I have gotten a man from the LORD.”
