Sins of the Father or Sins of the Fathers derives from Biblical references (primarily in the books Exodus, Deuteronomy, and Numbers) to the sins (or iniquities) of one generation passing to another. The idea has been conveyed paraphrastically into popular culture and may refer to:



  • Sins of the Father (2002 film), a television drama by Robert Dornhelm
  • Sins of the Fathers (1928 film), an American silent film
  • Magnolia (1999 film), a film by Paul Thomas Anderson which references 'the sins of the father' being transferred to the children of the characters, as well as references to Exodus 8:2 - the end of the movie features the land of the fathers, Los Angeles, being smote with frogs
