Curriculum Vitae:
  • Born in Roswell, New Mexico, 1953. Raised in Tucson, Arizona.

    Chrismated into the Orthodox Church, 1974.

    Master of Arts degree in (teaching) English as a Second Language, University of Arizona, 1977.

    Moved to Japan, 1979.

    Married Naomi Sophia Ozaki, at the Holy Resurrection Cathedral, Tokyo, 1981. O anhr authV hnesen authn, Pollai qugatereV ekthsanto plouton, pollai epoihsan dunata, su de uperkeisai kai uperhraV pasaV. (Ihr Mann lobt sie: "Es sind wohl viele tuchtige Frauen, du aber ubertriffst sie alle." [Prov. 31:28-29])

    One daughter, born 1982.

    Took up study of Greek, ca. 1996.

    A pilot page of an Interlinear Greek-Japanese Gospel of St. John, painstakingly typed using a vintage typewriter-style word processor, was rejected by a religious publisher in Tokyo, ca. 1997. (A Jesuit classicist scholar who had reviewed the page objected to the pronunciation scheme.) I tried to continue but lacked a publisher and a suitable word processor.

    Took up biblical studies, 1999-2000.

    Resurrected the interlinear Gospel after buying a computer, Feb. 2000, and published some time before Pascha, 2004.

    Decided an on-line Greek-English version would have more widespread appeal, June 2004. Began work in July after learning HTML. To access it, go to http://www.geocities.com/jbockman3rd/.

    Currently an instructor at Nevada-California International Consortium of Universities and Colleges, Tokyo, preparing Japanese high school graduates for foreign study.
