“Don’t Underestimate God”: The Shocking Phenomenon of Tim Tebow’s John 3:16 Eye Blacks

The Shocking Phenomenon of the John 3:16 Eye Blacks

After Tebow decided to change his eye blacks from Philippians 4:13, his coach wasn’t immediately on board. According to Tebow, Coach Meyer was superstitious, and he told Tebow, “You can’t change the verse. That verse got us here!”

After explaining why he wanted to change his eye black, Coach Meyer agreed. So on January 8, 2009, he put John 3:16 under his eyes for everyone at the BCS Championship Game to see.

“During that game,” Tim Tebow shared. “94 million people Googled John 3:16.”

Definitely not a coincidence.

Tim Tebow’s John 3:16 eye blacks led 94 million people to learn or be reminded that God loves them.

“He is a big God that wants to do an amazing things,” Tim Tebow said in the TikTok video.

If that were all that happened, it would be exciting and amazing. But it wasn’t.

Exactly three years later when the quarterback was playing for the Denver Broncos in the NFL playoffs, he wore the same verse, and God did something amazing through Tebow again.

It was January 8, 2012, three years to the day from when Tim Tebow first wore the John 3:16 eye blacks. The Broncos were playing the Pittsburgh Steelers. While Tebow says he didn’t think of John 3:16, one time throughout the game.

“I just went out there and tried to do anything I could to try to win a payoff game, and we were blessed to win this crazy game in overtime,” said Tebow.

But God showed up throughout Tebow’s stats.

After the game the PR guy tracked down Tebow, excited with news.

Tebow said, explaining the PR guy seemed serious in that moment and “He looks at me and says, Timmy, this is exactly three years from the time you put John 3:16 under your eyes…during the game, you threw for 316 yards.”

The John 3:16 reference was strangely in many of Tebow’s stats from that day. He explained how his PR guy told him that in addition to the 316 years, Tebow’s “yards per rush were 3.16. Your yards per completion were 31.6. The time of possession was 31.06, and the ratings for the night were 31.6.”

These numbers are facts.

And during this game 90 million people Googled John 3:16.

Tim Tebow said, “If we step out and show a little boldness,” God can do amazing things in our lives.

God wants everyone to know of His love, and He’ll use us if we let Him.
