Tim Tebow: John 3:16

On January 8, 2009, the BCS National Championship Game was a battle between two popular Heisman Trophy winners: quarterbacks Tim Tebow and Sam Bradford.
But football wasn’t the only thing attracting the attention of the 26.8 million fans watching the game.

Under Tim Tebow’s right eye black was the word, “John,” under the left, the numbers “3:16.” The curiosity of fans and the media resulted in 94 million Internet searches to discover one of the most iconic Bible verses of all time: John 3:16.

Tebow later responded to reporters, “That just kind of showed me, wow, the impact. I could wear something under my eyes and millions of people were going to Google it. I really had a platform!”

Tim Tebow remains one of the most respected athletes in contemporary history!
