Keeping Biblical Lanugages Simple with John Pappas, Th.D
Welcome To Bible Greek VPOD
You may have heard of podcasting, which is an audio program that is listened to on an IPOD. Vpod is short for Video Podcasting. It’s also known to some as a VODCast (Video On poDCAST.)
The idea is to teach New Testament Greek and Hebrew through fast and easy lessons.
If you are interested in learning KOINE GREEK, it will not take but a few months to be able to translate through the book of 1st John. It is not as difficult as you’ve been led to believe.
There is an excitement of translating the Bible in its original language. It has served to encourage me over the years. I hope and pray that this website will help you mature in your knowledge of the One who is called “the Word,” and share that knowledge to a world in need of knowing Him.

Bible Greek Vpod was created in 2006 in order to promote the learning of the Greek of the New Testament. What started as a simple idea to place three to five minute video segments online has turned into a very popular learning site where both a complete grammar book and video series provide a complete self contained program. John Pappas used the grammar book as the basis for his dissertation in 2008.
