Tim Tebow recently sat down with Harry Connick Jr. to talk about his newest book, “Shaken.” Tebow has always been known for displaying his faith on the football field, including wearing eye black with different Scriptures.
When Tebow’s Florida Gators were playing for the National Championship Jan. 8, 2009, he wore John 3:16 that night. 94 million people looked up that verse. Pretty amazing, right? It gets better.
Exactly three years later, Tebow and the Denver Broncos were in the playoffs against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Not only did Tebow lead a game-winning drive in overtime, but his stats were… dare we say… “divine?”
Tebow’s PR guy stopped him after the game and said “Timmy, do you realize what happened?”
“Yeah, we just beat the Steelers. We’re going to play the Patriots.”
“No, it’s exactly three years later from the day 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.”
Tebow said in his book, “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.”
