Learn to read New Testament Greek using a systematized approach with…

The Greek Mastery Membership

An all-access pass to Greek courses, a world-class community, and live teaching calls!

Take a tour of the Greek Mastery Membership!

Reading biblical Greek
shouldn't just be the
work of pastors and
theologians.

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.

What is the Greek Mastery Membership?

The Greek Mastery Membership is an all-in-one educational platform that gives you access to:

  • Greek courses from Beginner to Advanced Exegesis
  • Milestones with lessons guiding you through the Greek New Testament, book by book in order of difficulty
  • A world class community of instructors and fellow members
  • Live cohorts that walk through course material with an instructor on a weekly call

Courses

Courses available inside the membership include: 

  • Beginning Greek (25 weeks)
  • Reading Greek (10 weeks)
  • Greek Sytnax (15 weeks)
  • Interpretation of Ephesians (7 weeks)
We’re always adding new courses to serve our members!

Milestones

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.

Community

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. 

Cohorts

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. 

Starting Soon! New Beginning Greek Cohort!

Want to start or refresh with Beginning Greek?

We’re starting a new cohort on Thursday 22nd Sept at 1:30pm. 

Every week on a Thursday, this cohort will meet to discuss the homework for Beginning Greek. But instead of working through a lesson per week over 6 months, this cohort will walk through a chapter every 2 weeks! This means you’ll finish Beginning Greek in a year! 

A perfect pace for people with busy schedules, this cohort requires a minimum of 30 minutes work daily to keep pace. Join now and you can catch the welcome call or watch the replay of the welcome call afterward!

With the Greek Mastery Membership,
you follow a proven path to success.

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. 

This is the exact system I used to teach myself to read the Greek New Testament

and speed way ahead of what seminary was teaching me!

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.

The system consists of three steps... And now I teach these steps inside the Greek Mastery Membership so that you can have the same success I did.

I've taught this system to Greek Mastery Members, and here's what some have said:

This membership has given me a strong foundation in both the vocab and syntax of the Greek through an affordable, easily accessible means of learning from the comforts of home at my own pace. It's been super nice to work with as I'm working full-time, and it's given me exactly what I wanted--being able to read Scripture in its original language! I love it!

My personal experience with the Greek Mastery Membership and interaction with Dr. Burling has been exceedingly positive in all respects.

After two years in the Greek Mastery Membership program my ability to read and comprehend the Greek texts has soared. Not only have I become fluent with many Greek texts but I’ve also gained clarity and confidence when it comes to preaching and teaching the Scriptures. Above all else, I’m getting to know my Saviour in a deeper way. So, if you’re committed to the task and joy of learning to read the Greek New Testament, this program will get you there!
Steven Pretsel
Greek Mastery Member
As a busy homeschool mom of four, I feel like if I can do this, anyone can. This program has offered the support, guidance, encouragement, and tools that I needed to successfully start and continue my knowledge of Greek.
Meg Smith
Greek Mastery Member
I've long wanted to do away with my Greek reader's edition and read straight from the Greek New Testament with no other aids. However, I couldn't muster the discipline or put together an effective plan to cross that bridge. Biblical Mastery Academy is just what I needed. I love the program, and the milestones, and even the careful order of the books to keep students moving through the readings with as few roadblocks as possible. This is a great system, and I recommend it to anyone who is really serious about reading New Testament in its original language.
Ken Nunemaker
Greek Mastery Member
I learned Greek in seminary and found it so hard that every day after class, I'd go back to my room and cry, and tell the Lord that I couldn't do this. Then I discovered Biblical Mastery Academy and now I just finished beginning Greek and I love Greek!
Noel Ojendiz
Greek Mastery Member
I am now able to read directly from many Greek texts of the Bible without having to go back-and-forth using time consuming original language helps. Better however, is that the Greek Mastery Membership is not just a self study program. Darryl is personally involved in helping and encouraging all of us in the program to improve our Greek skills. Most important, this is the only program I've found since graduating from Seminary that has made it possible for me to maintain and grow in my mastery of the Greek text of the Bible.

Nothing helps you to learn vocabulary better than to see it immediately in a text you are reading, and nothing helps you to read a text more easily than to have just learned the vocabulary you need for it! Biblical Mastery Academy is like the stabilisers on a training bike, giving support and confidence for the next stage in learning.
Hilary Denufchatel
Greek Mastery Member
I learned Greek at Bible college back in 2004 but lost it all because of the busyness of ministry. Since then I've tried many different methods to relearn it but failed every time until I started on the Greek Mastery Membership. What I really like about the membership is:

1. Its system of learning is clear and systematic. It breaks things down into manageable steps, is easy to follow and you get to see your progress towards the goal of reading the entire GNT.

2. Darryl Burling is really knowledgable, friendly, helpful and he really wants you to be able to read the entire GNT

3.The Community - learning Greek in the courses together with other people who are passionate about the GNT really spurs me on.

Since joining the program I've regained all the Greek that I've lost since Bible college, am now able to read the GNT in my devotion and use it in my sermon prep. I am looking forward to be able to read the whole GNT.

People of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of education have had success by adopting this system of learning. Now, you can too.

The Greek Mastery Membership offers so much more than just a curriculum.

As a member, you are part of the Community!

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!

Joining weekly calls = Huge growth in your Greek skills

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. 

Our Community Calls include:

Office Hours Call

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.

Text Reading Call

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.

Our Current Call Schedule:

All times quoted in Pacific Daylight Time

Greek Office Hours:

Tuesdays 3:30pm

Greek Text Reading Call:

Mondays 5pm

Greek Text Reading Call:

Tuesdays 12pm

Hebrew Office Hours:

Wednesdays 12pm

Plus, the Community has a Reading Academy, with a book call every month!

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 also a great place to get support, 24/7!

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!

So I've covered courses, Milestones and the Community, but what about the cohorts?

Cohorts are our live walkthroughs of Greek courses.

That means that you’ll join 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 through your membership dashboard.

Upcoming Beginning Greek Cohort!

Beginning Greek

Thursdays 1:30pm, starting Sept 22nd

We’re about to start a new cohort for Beginning Greek! 

This will be a Greek in a Year Cohort, going through a lesson every 2 weeks. 

So, now you know what the membership offers.

But what's the outcome of joining the Greek Mastery Membership?

You'll gain the skills and knowledge to read the whole Greek New Testament without relying on external tools.

No interlinear bible.  

No lexicon.  

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:

Your ability to read Koine Greek will deepen your faith and impact your ministry.

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: 

The Greek Mastery Membership is a gift from heaven. As a minster of God's Word in a multi-site church, Biblical Mastery Academy has richly blessed my personal relationship with God's Word, and by extension, my churches' walk with Christ Jesus. Based on my personal and professional gains, I know Biblical Mastery Academy will greatly bless you!

By now you can probably see that the journey of learning Greek bears much fruit!

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 with the text blesses your studies and sermon preparation!

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.” 

Accurately handling the word of truth... without needing to be ashamed.

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.

Right Now, You Can
Learn Greek For
69.54% Less Than I
Paid To Learn Greek At
Seminary

(And you'll learn far more Greek than I did in seminary classes)

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… 

You could learn to read the whole Greek New Testament in 4 years.

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!

Become a member now, never worry about the price rising again.

When you become a Mastery Member, you’ll lock in whatever price you pay at the start. 

That means, when the price goes up for new members, your monthly or annual payment won’t change.

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.

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.

In Christ, 
Darryl 

This has been the most helpful program to keeping me consistent in learning greek since seminary. I had forgotten most of my greek, but the review got me back up to speed and the weekly vocabulary and readings give me a consistent schedule and path forward.
