The Tebow Bump
Everybody's searching for John 3:16 this morning.
We've come a long way since the days when only clowns brought John 3:16 to football stadiums.
At last night's BCS championship game, Tim Tebow changed the Scripture reference on his eye black. It had been Philippians 4:13: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
Last night it was John 3:16: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
The Florida quarterback accomplished more than one goal last night: Google Trends says John 3:16 is currently the hottest search term.
