Are you talking about this verse?

Acts 17:11
Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.

Based on this verse, the term "Berean" has become synonymous with Bible-study oriented people.
