Tim Tebow was recently on Harry Connick Jr.’s show to promote his new book, “Shaken Bible Study: Discovering Your True Identity in the Midst of Life’s Storms.”
Harry, who’s already read the book, pressed his guest to share an interesting story from his novel.
On January 8, 2009, Tim Tebow was in college playing for — and ultimately winning — the national championship. A well-known Christian, he wore the Bible verse John 3:16 under his eyes.

After the game, he was headed into a press conference when Patrick, the man in charge of the Broncos’ public relations, notified him of the date.
Tebow, who found the fact interesting, didn’t realize the magnitude of the connection.
Patrick explained further:
“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.”
While most people call it a “coincidence,” Tim Tebow calls it, “big God.”
