John 3:16 is a famous Bible passage, likely its most famous:
|“||For God so loved the people of the world that He gave His Only Son, so that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.||”|
As one of the most famous passages in the Bible, and its call to salvation, it has appeared in many media forms (e.g. signs at sporting events).
Tim Tebow publicized this verse as a football player, and it became associated with him. In his dramatic upset playoff victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2012, the massive television audience learned that:
|“||During the game [Tim Tebow] threw for 316 yards, [his] yards per rush were 3.16, [his] yards per catch were 31.6, the ratings for the game was 31.6 and the time of possession was 31.6.||”|
