However, that is not the only Bible-related event that took place during the game in Denver. Consider these statistics:
- Ben Rothlesburger passed for 289 yards and Proverbs 28:9 reads: "He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination." Could this be a sign that the once dominant Pittsburgh QB has abandoned his faith and, in so doing, may soon find himself out of the NFL?
- Denver receiver Demaryius Thomas caught 4 passes for an average of 51 yards and one touchdown. In Luke 1:51 we are told: "He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts." Doesn't that sound like a particular football player who's initials are TT?
- Pittsburgh running back Isaac Redman had a total of 121 yards on 17 attempts for an average of 7.12 yards per carry. Doesn't Matthew 7:12 teach us "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets." Commonly known as The Golden Rule, Jesus frees everyone from the hundreds of religious restrictions from the Old Testament in this passage. Unfortunately, the overtime rules of football that did not give Pittsburgh a chance to possess the ball remain in effect.
And finally, Denver had only 29:05 minutes of possession, 2 minutes less than Pittsburgh, and yet won the game. Shockingly, Genesis 29:5 says "He said to them, "Do you know Laban, Nahor's grandson?" "Yes, we know him," they answered." If that doesn't blow your mind, then maybe it's time for you to consider some serious Bible study!
