Hi! My name is Stan and I’m the guy behind GreekForAll.com. I have an extensive background in biblical languages and deep knowledge of Greek texts. My Slavic origin deeply rooted Koine Greek in my DNA. I’ve studied ancient languages and biblical studies in both Europe and North America and currently I’m in preparation for the PhD program. For the last several years I’ve been engaged in teaching, preaching and traveling as an instructor, educator and international speaker.
But in reality I’m really just a guy who once had a dream to study theology in a seminary. Having no money I hoped to get the highest score on entry exams and get the only scholarship the school was offering. After three days of exams, the top spot read my name! That single moment changed my entire life. There, in the seminary, I discovered my passion for ancient languages. Being of Slavic background helped with the Greek. In fact, learning flow was so natural that I felt Koine was my mother tongue. I was in love with Greek.
Fast forward three years, I was crossing the Atlantic. The Greek for my grad studies was no sweat. Neither was the Hebrew. That single fact led me to realize that languages are just my thing.
However, the picture wasn’t so bright for many of my classmates and friends. They struggled. Countless sleepless nights and stressed times before the exams. I felt for them. Thus, an idea to create a resource that would help anyone (not just seminary students) to learn biblical Greek was born.
So Why The Greek For All Website?
~Reading the Bible in a translation is like watching a foreign movie with subtitles.~
You understand the general idea but miss lots of details and it’s hard to appreciate actors’ play. It is the same with the Bible: a translation is always a product of interpretation and thus by nature is the second hand product.
