3:16 what?

I gather its from the bible, but you see the 3:16 verse being used in quite a few places now, and not just Austin 3:16. What in the heck does it mean? Which book of the bible in particular is it refering too?

Sorry if its a dumb question, but this has been bugging me for a little while now!


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.”

That would be John 3:16 “For God so love the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believe in him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

Cecil wrote about the guy who holds that sign up all the time, last I read he is in jail. Find his column.

Here they are:

What’s with those " John 3:16" signs that people hold up at football games?

Is the guy who held up those ‘John 3:16’ signs at sports events in jail for life?

the reason so many people are turning to 3:16 now is because of this…

At a WWF Pay Per View entitled ‘King of the Ring 1996’

the finals of the tournament was a guy called Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts, and ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin.
Jake was known for saying John 3:16 here and there.
And when austin beat him in the match he said something along these lines…

“You talk about your psalms and your John 3:16, well AUSTIn 3:16 says i just kicked you ass”

then it clicked with him and now its on T-Shirts all over the world.
