Tebow's Eye-Black: Mark 8:36

Tim Tebow broke out a new Bible verse on his eye-black today:

Mark 8:36

The passage: "What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?"

Beyond the strict religious interpretation, that's not a bad secular or humanist guide to living.

I'm already starting to lobby for it now for him to wear next week:

Ezekiel 25:17 (or, for fitting on eye-black: Zeke 25:17)

If it sounds familiar, it's Jules' speech from "Pulp Fiction."

Here's the passage: "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee."

Seems fitting for Lane Kiffin's first visit to the Swamp, doesn't it?

  1. This is my favorite Bible verse. Also, found again in Matthew 16:26. Great to think about, considering our earthly treasures are not what this life is all about nor will those things matter in the end (they will perish).

  2. I like the Mark verse, but boy, that passage from Ezekiel would've made waves! "When I lay my vengeance upon thee..."
