A Super Bowl ad that was originally “banned” by Fox Television because it was potentially offensive aired during the big game. The ad features several people watching a football game and the camera zooms in on the television. A football player’s eye black displays “John 3:16″. The people watching the television wonder what it means and one man says, “I’ll look it up.” Watch the video here:
Of course, John 3:16 reads: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.” (NRSV) This verse from the Bible is used by Christians at sporting events. Tim Tebow was known for scripture verses on his eye black during his college days.
