Tim Tebow Mysterious John 3:16 Has More Meaning After Playoff Game
Tim Tebow has captured the attention of sports writers, broadcasters, fans, enemies, and ladies. More women are watching NFL because they like Tim Tebow. Here's some interesting numbers for you.
John 3:16 is the biblical verse most associated with Tebow, primarily because he routinely wrote it on his eye black during his collegiate career at Florida. (The verse reads: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.")
And Tebow's stat line - 316 yards passing and 31.6 yards per completion - was no coincidence to many of his fans.
Among the observations: "It's a little crazy that Tebows' favorite verse is John 3:16 and he threw for 316 yards & a couple of his bosses are named John. #faith"
Of course there were many detractors fed up with divine connection: "The fact that Tebow threw for 316 yards means only one thing. He threw for 316 yards. Come on, people!"
Still, it's amazing that in one season Tim Tebow can give more PR to John 3:16 than Rollen (Rainbow Head) Stewart could do in two decades - he was the guy famous from wearing a rainbow wig and holding up John 3:16 signs at sporting events in the 70s and 80s.
