It begins with Tebow highlighting the verse during the college football national championship in 2009 and culminates in a number-crunching miracle of statistics exactly three years later in the NFL playoffs.

"We were playing for the national championship in college on January 8, 2009, and I decided to wear John 3:16 under my eyes, and during the game, 94 million people Googled John 3:16, and it was a pretty cool moment," Tebow said.

Fast forward to 2012 and Tebow is a Denver Bronco playing the Pittsburgh Steelers in the playoffs, and after the Broncos won, he headed into the post-game press conference when his public relations representative stopped him. (Photo Credit: YouTube via CBN News/ Harry Connick Jr.)

"He says, 'Timmy, did you realize what happened?' I was like, 'Yeah, we just beat the Steelers. We're going to play the Patriots.' And he was like, 'No, do you realize what happened?' I was like, 'Alright, Patrick, what's up?'" Tebow shared.

"He said, 'It's exactly three years later from the day that you wore John 3:16 under your eyes,'" Tebow continued. "I was like, 'Oh, that's really cool.'"

"He said, 'No, I don't think you realize what happened. During the game, 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,'" Tebow shared.

"And during the game, 90 million people had already Googled John 3:16, and it was the number one trending thing on Facebook and Twitter," Tebow continued. "And a lot of people will say, 'It's coincidence.' I say, 'big God.'"
