More Tim #Tebow 3:16 #tebow316

So… I figured since everyone else was going right for John 3.16 as the key verse which Tebow’s yards represent, I might suggest other, plausible, verses:

To the woman he said, “I will greatly increase your pangs in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children, yet your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.” (Gen 3:16 NRS)

Then the priest shall turn these into smoke on the altar as a food offering by fire for a pleasing odor. All fat is the LORD’s. (Lev 3:16 NRS)

Ehud made for himself a sword with two edges, a cubit in length; and he fastened it on his right thigh under his clothes. (Jdg 3:16 NRS) (Ehud should have stuck with that sword and not the other sword, if you know what I mean)

The LORD said: Because the daughters of Zion are haughty and walk with outstretched necks, glancing wantonly with their eyes, mincing along as they go, tinkling with their feet; (Isa 3:16 NRS)

Then those who revered the LORD spoke with one another. The LORD took note and listened, and a book of remembrance was written before him of those who revered the LORD and thought on his name. (Mal 3:16 NRS)

ruin and misery are in their paths, (Rom 3:16 NRS)

So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am about to spit you out of my mouth. (Rev 3:16 NRS)

I dunno… maybe they should associate 316 with another verse…

I love watching ex nihilo at work!

  1. The only problem is….if you have ever watched much football, there is always a crazy guy holding up a sign in the end zone with John 3:16. This has been going on as long as I have watched football. So the Tibow coincidence is even creeping me out.

  2. I’m not sure if you’re just not up to speed on the history between Tim Tebow and John 3:16, or if you’re just being . . . clever. In the past, Tim had “John 3:16” written on the paint-bars on his face, and this elicited the invention of a new rule, the “Tebow Rule,” against writing one’s own messages in the paint-bars. So there’s only one book of the Bible that is associated with Tebow and the number 316, and that’s the Gospel of John.

    So seeing 316 passing-yards, after a week in which Tebow was being disparaged, and in which John Elway had encouraged him to “pull the trigger,” was rather an impressive coincidence — as if someone wanted to convey that even without the paint-bars, the message will get through.

    Clearly not all ears are open to the language of coincidence. Fine; that has always been the case. Keep telling yourself that such stuff is for babies, not for wise people. I’m sure that after the contest on Mt. Carmel, when news of the outcome was brought to the palace, the royal advisors wisely insisted, “You know, lightning was going to strike there anyway.”
