John 3:16 was the Bible verse that Tim Tebow was once banned from painting in tiny script onto his eye black.
But the Denver Broncos quarterback nonetheless delivered that Biblical message to the masses Sunday during an overtime victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The score was 29-23. But the game was significant for other -- some might say supernatural -- game-time numbers: He passed for316 yards against the Steelers, and set an NFL playoff record with 31.6 yards per completion.
For Christians, John 3:16, of course, is arguably the single most important verse in the Bible. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
John 3:16 was the most Googled search term for much of Sunday evening and into Monday morning, as sports fans and non-sports fans alike tried to make sense of the statistical coincidences (and maybe brush up on the Bible).
Oddly enough, Tebow himself did not seem to make a connection between his game stats and the Bible verse that he used to paint in white on top of his eye black until the National Football League barred all such personal messages.
But he did praise the Lord, as he has done throughout his career, a practice that has gained him plenty of fans and critics. "First and foremost I just want to thank my Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. He’s done so much in my life," Tebow said to the media after the game.
Although he can no longer paint John 3:16 on his game face, Tebow still keeps it close, using it to sign off amessage to fans on his website.
Here's a good video from the Christian Brodcasting Network (CBN).

And, finally, here's the numerical analysis:
20120108 was the 77th anniversary of the birth of Elvis Presley, "The King", in 1935. 77 = 11 prime x 7.
Leo (356) = 89 prime x 4 and 89 cycles of 316 days prior to 20120108 brings us EXACTLY back to January 8, 1935 which was the birth of Elvis.
John 3:16 (316) is 40 from Leo (356) so 40 is one of the key numbers in this analysis.
20120108 - 316 days = 20110226 which is the 2/26 (226) mo/day that factors into 113 prime x 2 which is the prime of I (9) Am (14) One (655) = 678 = 113 prime x 6.
The score was tied 23-23 going into overtime. 2323 = 101 prime X 23. 23 corresponds to I (9) Am (14) which was our Lord's original name and title given to Moses on Mt. Sinai - ie. "I Am...the Lord thy God..." Exodus 20:2.
23 "I (9) Am (14)" cycles of 2323 days prior to 20120108 brings us to 18650926 which was 23 + 23 = 46 days from August 11th, the Divine Birthdate of our Lord. 18650926 was 23 "I Am" days from 9/03 which is the day that my father passed/ascended 131 years into the future in 1996. 131 is the prime of ONE (655) = 131 prime X 5.
And if we move forward 23 cycles of 2323 days from 20120108 we will arrive at the 4/21 (421) mo/day in the year 2158. 4/21 is always 23 "I Am" + 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" days from August 11th, the Divine Birthdate.
Tebow's game winning TD was an 80 yard pass-run caught by #88 Demaryius Thomas. The play lasted 11 seconds. 88 = 8 X 11 which mirrors 8/11 (811).
41 is a prime number that corresponds to "I Am the light of the world" - John 8:12. The math is simple: I (9) Am (14) the (285) of (66) the (285) world (56934) = 97375 = 41 prime X 2375.
41 cycles of 811 prime days prior to 20120108 brings us back to 19201225 which is Christmas day. The end of the first cycle of 811 days from 19201225 brings us to the 3/16 (316) mo/day in the year 1923 which factors into 641 prime X 3 which is the prime of the word Rose (9615) = 641 prime X 15.
Now let's go back to the number 40 as we noted above - ie. John 3:16 (316) + 40 = Leo (356)
40 cycles of 811 days prior to 20120108 brings us to - as we just observed directly above - the 3/16 (316) mo/day in the year 1923.
In keeping with 11 seconds - the length of the last play - if we go back eleven (11) cycles of 316 days prior to 20120108 it will brings us to 20020703. Day ONE (1) of this cycle, July 4th in the year 2002, was the 226th anniversary of our Declaration of Independence in 1776. 226 mirrors the 2/26 (226) mo/day above which factors into 113 "I Am One" prime x 2.
The end of the 2331st cycle of 316 days fell on 20110504 which was 249 days from 20120108.
2331 = 777 x 3 which mirrors the 77th anniversary of Elvis's birth above. Day ONE (1) of this cycle, 5/5, was 89 "Prime of Leo (356)" days from 2/5, my 53rd birthday.
Eleven (11) cycles of 249 days brings us back to 20040709 which was/is the 191st "Prime of God (764)" day of the year 2004. God (764) = 191 prime x 4.
