Not since then-Sen. Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, has an American figure’s arrival been so messianic as Tim Tebow’s second coming as an NFL starting quarterback. The Broncos are 3-1 since Tebow took over the starting job, but I don’t think that’s why his jersey has been customized with the name “Jesus” on the back where “Tebow” should be.
Tim Tebow said he’s a Christian. While at Florida, he wrote scriptures on his eye black paint and now in Denver some are calling him the “chosen one.”
Some have even gone as far as creating Tebow in Christ-like images.
What does a Christ-like Tebow look like? A little clay No. 15 on a cross?
There is at least a picture of the Jesus jersey, though it’s unclear from this story how many have actually been made.
