Must Watch: Tim Tebow Tells Insane John 3:16 Story!

    Pro athlete Tim Tebow dropped by Harry Connick Jr.‘s talk show yesterday and told the story of an uncanny coincidence that happened to him in his football days.

    “We were playing for the national championship (on the Florida Gators) in college on January 8, 2009, and I decided to wear John 3:16 under my eyes. And during the game, 94 million Googled ‘John 3:16,’ and it was a pretty cool moment,” Tebow said of the popular Bible verse that he wrote on his eye black.

    “Exactly three years later, we happened to be playing the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round of the playoffs when I was with the Denver Broncos, and I didn’t even know that it was exactly three years later—it was January 8, 2012, exactly three years later to the day—I just went out there and tried to do whatever I could to win a playoff game, and afterward I’m going into the press conference because I love talking to the media,” he said with a joking eye roll. “Our PR guy jumps in front of me and says, ‘Timmy, do you realize what happened?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, we just beat the Steelers. We’re going to play the Patriots.’ He was like, ‘No…it’s exactly three years later from the day that you wore John 3:16 under your eyes…during the game you threw for 316 yards. Your yards per rush were 3.16. Your yards per completion were 31.6. The ratings for the game were 31.6 and the time of possession was 31.6.’”

    Although some may refer to the story as a “coincidence,” the Shaken author, who is open about his Christian faith, has a different perspective: “A lot of people will say it’s coincidence—I say big God.”

    Isn’t that amazing?!?
