Having your own knowledge of the word of God is an integral part of your walk with Christ.
Without it, you’re relying on theologians and pastors to interpret the word for you, making you a second-hander.
With the Mastery Membership, you can go deeper into the word of God than you ever have before by learning to read biblical Greek.
Biblical Mastery Academy
The Greek Mastery Membership is an all-in-one educational platform that gives you access to:
Courses available inside the membership include:
Milestones are smaller achievements within the big journey! Each milestone contains video lessons guiding you through the New Testament book you’re reading through with the relevant vocabulary for you to learn.
There are 7 milestones, each containing between 3 and 7 New Testament books.
The community is a huge part of our membership, because you can get quick help with anything you need an answer to.
The community is also where we host weekly calls for support and growth – anyone can join these calls, regardless of which milestone or stage you’re in.
The live cohorts give you regular opportunities to take one of our courses with a group and an instructor. In a cohort, you’ll attend weekly live video calls to discuss the coursework and get specified help from an instructor.
One of the biggest challenges of learning Greek is the sheer size of the task.
That’s why we’ve broken the task into a series of smaller, bite-sized steps that we’ve put into a logical structure inside the Milestones.
Using our system, you’ll read your way book-by-book through the Greek New Testament starting from the easiest book and progressing to the most challenging book of the New Testament.
Our job is to guide you through every small step until you’re reading your Greek New Testament with clarity and confidence.
Each time you take a small step, the next one is ready and waiting for you.
See how our system walks you systematically through the journey from Beginner to Mastery?
(I’ve hidden the titles of the books, because it’s our secret strategy behind reading the whole Greek NT as quickly as possible.)
As you can see, in each stage of the Success Path there are specific courses and Milestones.
The courses improve your Greek grammar, the Milestones contain a set amount of NT books to read.
All of our courses and milestones are broken down into weekly lessons so that you can progress day by day, week by week.
You’ll get video content and worksheets in each lesson, to help you progress toward mastery.
Here’s the story of how this system came about.
When I was a student in seminary, I had the personal goal of reading the whole Greek NT.
However, I realized the classes alone were not enough to take me to that goal. I knew if I wanted to succeed, I’d have to come up with a system myself.
So what I did was, I took all the books in the Greek NT…
Arranged them from easiest to hardest to read based on both lexical and syntactical difficulty…
And spent hours reviewing and arranging the vocabulary for each book.
I then discovered the secret to being able to read through the New Testament far quicker than any other method I’d seen.
I couldn’t believe no one else was teaching this. It blew other approaches to learning vocabulary (like the occurrence-based approach) out of the water.
Once I started using it, I was able to read more of the Greek New Testament, with greater speed, and more ease than most of my classmates.
When I created the Greek Mastery Membership, I didn’t want it to just be an “info-dump.”
I wanted to make sure members were achieving their goal of learning to read Greek.
So I created the Biblical Mastery Academy Community, where I and other instructors host weekly live calls!
Every week in our buzzing community we offer an Office Hours Call and two Text Reading Calls.
In these calls, you can ask me or one of our Greek instructors your questions in real time! These calls are an opportunity to check in, bring questions, and make progress with your skills.
An open call for anyone to join and bring any questions about Greek. Whatever you’re working through, use the Office Hours to interact with an instructor and discuss your current challenges.
A call to read through Greek text together. This helps you sharpen your translation skills. You will get a chance to read and translate aloud on the call, with feedback from the teacher.
Every month, I choose a book for us to read on Greek, Hebrew, Spiritual Growth, or the New Testament period, and we have a call at the end of the month to discuss the book.
This is helps you grow in your love for in the biblical languages and the culture around them.
Here are just some of the Reading Academy books we’ve read in the past…
The Community is where members chat, share, and help one another out.
You’ll be able to ask any question in the community and get support from people further ahead than you. You’ll get fast responses because the members of this community love to serve and support each other.
This kind of support is invaluable. Being able to ask a question and have responses within minutes helps you grow so much faster than if you were studying alone!
Cohorts are live walkthroughs of our Greek courses.
They involve a weekly live call with one of the instructors at Biblical Mastery Academy to walk through the course, lesson-by-lesson.
This gives you get structure, accountability, and deadlines to keep you motivated.
These are our courses for which we run cohorts:
Throughout the year, we regularly start new cohorts, and do our best to cater for different time zones.
Even if you can’t make it to the live classes, the calls are all recorded for you to watch afterwards. These give you an “anchor”. Something to track along with, week by week, to ensure you’re staying on schedule.
Cohorts are entirely optional, but they are great for keeping you moving in your Greek. You can always access all the course work.
No interlinear bible.
No reliance on commentaries.
Nothing. Just you and your Greek New Testament.
You’ll be understanding the original text without depending on the translation work of others.
And one of the greatest things about learning Greek is this:
When you can read the scriptures in Greek, and know the Lord as he has revealed himself in the New Testament, you’ll grow in your love for Christ. You will become a more faithful servant of God, because your direct knowledge of scripture drives everything you do.
This is why members send in testimonials like this:
You’ll have greater clarity about what the author has communicated. As one of our members put it, “I feel like I’m getting to know the authors.”
You’ll have greater confidence in your understanding of scripture.
You’ll also see incredible gains in efficiency because you’re less dependent on the work of others.
And best of all, you’ll have a vitality to your walk with Christ, a daily joy that is constantly growing deeper.
You’ll see as you study the original language of the New Testament that…
Efficiency is important.
First, because you’re reading scripture in Greek, you don’t need to ask as many questions about what the text means. You know what it means without having someone to hold your hand.
Not only this, but when you encounter a difficult text, you’ll have a huge advantage. Instead of sifting through varying opinions, and having no way of coming to an answer…
Your knowledge of Greek will allow you to quickly and effectively evaluate the arguments and conclusions of scholars!
Your knowledge and work will be faster, which creates more clarity in the text than you’ve ever experienced.
In short, knowing Greek will allow you to live out 2 Timothy 2:15.
“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a worker who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.”
Who doesn’t want that?
Reading in Greek will empower your life and ministry more than any other theological pursuit.
Learning and knowing the original languages will immerse you in the word of truth like never before.

When I went to seminary, I paid $6500 USD for seven classes of Greek over 7 semesters.
That included Beginning Greek, two semesters of Greek Exegesis, and then two more semesters of exegeting a few different NT books, and one class reading through the Church Fathers.
But I was not taught how to read Greek (even in my Church Fathers class).
I had to do a lot of self-directed work outside of my regular seminary studies to learn how to read.
For you however, it would be a different story.
With the Greek Mastery Membership…
If you paid the annual fee, that’d be $550 a year.
So if you stayed in the Mastery Membership for four years, your grand total would be $2,200.
That’s just 30.46% of what I paid for only seven classes of seminary…
And for a far more thorough education in biblical Greek than I ever got!

I am constantly working on improving the Mastery Membership for you. Every year I add new courses, trainings and material for you to progress further in your Greek.
As a member, you can enjoy these new features at no extra cost!
This year, we added an Exegesis of Ephesians course, and we won’t slow down!
I’m willing to stand by that promise.
Even going to seminary won’t give you the skills of reading in Greek that the Mastery Membership will give you.
Many seminary students or graduates become Mastery Members because of the incredibly high standard of Greek teaching we offer.
Right now, the Mastery Membership is just $50/month or $550/year.
(The yearly option essentially gives you one month free each year.)
I would love to serve you and help you grow in your Greek.
So would the rest of our instructors and the whole community.
The question is, are you ready to take the first step?
If so, I’ll see you inside.

We're creating an optional certification framework for Greek Mastery Members.
Level 1 certification is similar to the Greek you'd learn in a Bachelors degree in Biblical Studies.
Level 2 certification is similar to the Greek in a robust MDiv program.
Level 3 certification will put your Greek on a par with doctoral graduates.
All while developing a deeper love for the Word of God!
We just wrapped up our first year of certification and members loved it!
