Speak Koine (Biblical) Greek 4 – John 14:6a

John 14:6 is a longer verse than the verses we’ve looked at so far. Because of that we are going to split up the verse into parts.  I don’t remember when I first learned the principle, but it goes like this:

“Yard by yard, it’s way too hard, but inch by inch, it’s a cinch.”

It’s pretty easy to remember a phrase or two, but learning verses that have multiple sentences and compound phrases becomes complicated, especially when you’re first starting.  With that in mind we are in a break this verse down into three parts, and the first part is only four words in the Greek.

John 14:6 is one of the great proclamations that Jesus made about himself.  Play the link below to learn the verse in Greek and to practice.
