Tim Tebow

John 3:16 evoked following Tebow’s 316 yards passing and 31.6 yards per completion

Tim Tebow’s performance on Sunday evoked John 3:16, his favorite biblical verse, without even requiring him to say a word.

As CBS News reports, Tebow’s stat line on Sunday night read 316 yards passing and 31.6 yards per completion. For Tebow and his fans, this was no coincidence — it was a clear sign and reference to John 3:16.

John 3:16 — “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” — was routinely written on Tebow’s eye black while he was at Florida.

One fan tweeted, “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.”
