A few years ago the principal of the English Mission College at Cairo, Egypt, received a letter from a Japanese Buddhist of the city whose children were attending his school. "Who is John three sixteen? My children are always talking about him?"

The principal sent a note back saying that "John three sixteen" was not a person but a verse out of a book.

He promptly received another letter from the man. "Can you supply me with a copy of the book?"

A copy was sent and although the man was then leaving Cairo, the principal soon received word that the father and all members of the family had become Christians.

--Wesleyan Methodist. From a sermon by Bill Butsko, Who Is He? 8/27/2010
