Welcome to The Incredible Back Story of John 3:16

The Psalm 23 Podcast

16-01-2024 • 30 mins

How well do you know the most well-known sentence in the entire Bible?

This limited series explores the build-up to, the rich detail within, and the aftermath of John 3:16.

In conversation with Hope Morning's Ben McEachen, New Testament experts Cass Kwayke (Whitley College, Melbourne) and Tom Habib (Moore Theological College, Sydney) help us to pull together the Old Testament threads and new revelations flowing from Jesus' discussion with Jewish leader Nicodemus.

This episode is the first half of Cass and Tom's exploration of what happens as we head toward John 3:16, covering the start of John's gospel – and everything before.

We hope the John 3:16 podcast will resource your faith with powerful truths about belief in God’s Son that leads to eternal life.

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.


Cass is a lecturer in New Testament at Whitley College, Melbourne. Previously, she lectured at Morling College in Sydney for more than 14 years. Cass is an ordained minister and has served for more than 20 years in roles such as church planter and associate pastor.
