Our Name

The backstory of the name we chose connects to three verses of Scripture, each found in chapter three, verse sixteen of their respective books of the Bible.

JOHN 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. (LSB)

COLOSSIANS 3:16 – Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with gratefulness in your hearts to God. (LSB)

2 TIMOTHY 3:16 – All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness. (LSB)

Our Journey Thus Far...

During a 2011 trip to Korea, our president came across a captivating 10-volume comic series of the Bible that reminded him of the Picture Bible that he had as a young child. Desiring that others experience the same format which helped develop within him a love for God’s Word, he obtained the rights to translate the Power Bible (originally published in Korean) into English.That same year, Green Egg Media was born. 

In 2015, Green Egg Media’s VP met Disney Legend Glen Keane to discuss getting the beloved Adam Raccoon series back into print. A year later, The Adventures of Adam Raccoon Boxed Signature Set was released, making all eight books available once again for parents, grandparents, and their youngsters. 

In 2017, an opportunity for partnering with Pastor John MacArthur on a special Bible project presented itself when he expressed his idea of the perfect format for a preaching Bible. In less than a year, the Original Preacher's Bible in the NASB ‘95 was released to all the pastors at the Shepherds’ Conference through the generous gift of Grace to You ministries. 

With over 40 years of experience in Bible design and manufacturing, our staff joyfully welcomed this new category and restructured the company to plan for continued growth. In that same year Green Egg Media would be rebranded as Three Sixteen Publishing and our brand imprints have since expanded to include four divisions:

  • Steadfast Bibles: Bible division, publishing editions of the NASB ‘95 and the Legacy Standard Bible (LSB)
  • Green Egg Media: Children’s book division, publishing high quality Christian Children’s resources.
  • Bella Paper: Paper and stationery division, publishing calendars, planners, journals and greeting cards that include Scripture from the NASB ‘95 and LSB.
  • 316 Publishing: Trade-book division, publishing non-fiction Christian titles

In February 2020, Three Sixteen Publishing participated in a meeting at Grace Community Church where the idea of the Legacy Standard Bible was born. 2021 marked two historic launches—the LSB New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs in February, and the first complete edition of the Legacy Standard Bible (The LSB Handy Size - First Edition; Fall, 2021)

Three Sixteen Publishing has since released several more formats of the LSB, including the first full reference edition in 2022 and is planning more for the upcoming years. We are grateful for the growth that our publishing company has experienced and through God’s grace and strength we will continue to fulfill our mission.
