Does anyone on here consider mods new video games? I consider the Spear of Destiny Mission Packs three video games even though the remaining two episodes are mods.

I was using poor choice of words and including the orignal Spear in with the two mission packs. This is why I said three.

I suppose there's no right or wrong answer here. Different people will draw the line in different places as to what's a new game and wasn't not. While SOD is certainly a legit entry in the Wolf3D series, whether or not it's a new game is arbitrary. It has new maps, music, enemies, and graphics, but little more. Aside from the Ammo Box, the gameplay is exactly the same.

The line between what is considered a mod and a new game is not well defined, to the point that it's basically irrelevant; really the only properly discernible difference is that new games tend to be "officially released" ones, whereas mods tend to ones made my the community, but as far as content goes there's no real difference between the two (otherwise SoD is more of a mod than even something simple like Wolfendoom is).

Mod - means modification.
Game is made from ground up, mod is modification of previous game, which can be released and sold if you own the rights to its resources.
So yes, Spear can be defined as a mod of shares code and art with previous games.
