Gain the skills and knowledge to read the whole Greek New Testament without relying on external tools.

Imagine this: 

One fine morning, you sit down to read your Greek New Testament. 

Instead of opening up BDAG, Logos Bible Software, or some other tool, you simply open up your Greek New Testament and begin to read.

As you read your way through the verses, you don’t stop to look up words. Instead, you experience an uninterrupted and rich interaction with the author’s own words in their own language. 

This experience helps you grow in understanding of the original text without having to depend on the translation work of others. 

Your love for God and for His word will grow.

Translations don’t just change the language from Greek to English. Translations also adapt the original words to the modern worldview. This means that the text is being transported 2000 years forward.

Reading the original languages forces us to grapple with the worldview of the authors – how they thought and processed information. 

Translations leave a veil over the language of scripture which keeps us at a distance from the texture of the original writings. 

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Here's 4 Ways That Learning Greek Benefits You:

When you read your New Testament in Greek… 

1. You’ll have greater clarity about what the writers of the New Testament books have communicated. As one of our members put it, “I feel like I’m getting to know the authors.”

2. You’ll have greater confidence in your understanding of scripture. You will be relying on your own interaction with the text rather than the thoughts of someone else who has studied Greek. 

3. You’ll also see incredible gains in efficiency because you’re less dependent on the work of others. Instead of spending 10 hours in the commentaries, you can spend 1 in the text!

4. And best of all, you’ll have a vitality to your walk with Christ, a daily joy that is constantly growing deeper. 

Your ministry will be greatly strengthened by your knowledge of Greek!

Reading Greek paves the way for faithful service to Christ 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!

Your personal ministry might be focused in the church, in the home, or on the mission field.. (Including the mission field in your own hometown!)

Wherever and however you serve, knowing Greek will help you be more effective, because your daily interaction with the word shapes your character, and your character is reflected in the way you serve.

To illustrate, let me point out one of the apostle Paul’s concerns for believers

He desired that those to whom he was writing would look more and more like Jesus in their life and character

In other words, he wants believers to be spiritually mature or complete.

Just consider the following passages from Paul’s pen:

Col 1:28-29 We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ. For this purpose also I labor, striving according to His power, which mightily works within me. 

2 Cor 13:9b this we also pray for, that you be made complete.

2 Cor 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.

The journey of learning Greek will help you grow and mature into the image of Christ, just as God wills for you. (1 Thess 4:3, “For this is the will of God, your sanctification…”)

But Won't This Take Forever?

Many people argue that learning Greek is a big time investment. This is true, but it disregards the fact that Greek saves you time in the long run. 

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, because learning and knowing the original languages will immerse you in the word of truth like never before.

Ready To Learn Greek?

Take a Systematic Approach With The Greek Study Membership!

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


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!


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 personal help from an instructor. 


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.

In the Greek Study 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.

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. 

Our system walks you systematically through the journey from Beginner to Mastery.

*Note that the dark course logos on the right of each milestone is part of the Greek Mastery Membership.
**Certification is a paid add on to the Greek Mastery Membership and not available in the Greek Study Membership.

As you can see in the picture, the books are in a specific order… 

That order is from easiest to hardest in terms of syntactical and lexical difficulty. 

In other words, you will be reading your way through the Greek New Testament from easiest book to hardest!

What’s more, you will learn vocabulary as you go – meaning that for every book you read, you will learn only the new vocabulary you need, building on your existing knowledge. 

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

and speed way ahead of
where seminary left 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… 

 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 Study 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!

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.
Dennis Davies

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!




As a member, you get access to our systematic approach to mastering the Greek New Testament

To help you systematically learn the grammar and syntax of NT Greek!

One of the huge benefits of studying with a membership is that you don’t pay per course, and there’s no time pressure on when you have to complete courses by. 

As a member, you have access the course you need, as you need it! 

But our beginning Greek courses are a little different. You can study at your own pace OR you can join a cohort and study with others. 

Beginning Greek Details

Course Outcome: You can read 1 John in Greek, and you are proficient in Beginning Greek grammar.
Study options: Self-study, Cohorts
Course Length: 50 weeks or study at your own pace. We also provide faster 25-week cohorts from time to time.
Next Cohort Late Sept (with call replays provided)

Cohorts: Opportunities For Interaction With Instructors!

What is a cohort? 

A cohort is simply a group of people working through a course at the same pace, and meeting together on a live call with one of our instructors once a week to discuss homework. 

Cohorts give you get structure, accountability, and deadlines to keep you motivated and learning. 

In fact, we find that those who join live calls regularly are generally more successful than those who don’t. 

We run regular cohorts for beginning Greek based on Beginning with New Testament Greek by Rob Plummer and Benjamin Merkle, and we provide additional homework and review sheets to help you master the material. 

Currently we start 4 Beginning Greek cohorts annually! This means if you join one cohort then fall behind, you can self-study until you’re ready to join the next one. 

With every cohort, we aim to choose a time that suits as many people as possible, but not everyone can attend the live calls for their cohort.

That’s why we post the replays for every call inside the course feed – these are highly valuable for checking your translations against the other members and the instructor’s feedback. 

Systematically read through whole New Testament books

Milestones -The core training of the Greek Study Membership that you will not find anywhere else.

Milestones are achievable goals that you can hit along the way toward the big goal  of mastery of the whole Greek New Testament. 

Every Milestone contains a number of New Testament books to read which we break into readings you can actually read and achieve given the level of Greek experience. 

For each weekly reading, video lessons guide you through a handful of grammar concepts, and you get a set of vocabulary words to learn to prepare you for the next reading. 

Our vocabulary acquisition program is the secret behind being able to read New Testament books with confidence and clarity. Greek Mastery Members have proven that this system is one of the most advantageous for those looking to quickly read a large volume of New Testament books. 

Compared with other programs, ours boasts a high reading volume in a relatively short time! 

Learning vocabulary in a strategic order makes all the difference. 

In the Greek Study Membership, we make it easy for you. We provide all the vocabulary in digital flashcard decks, compatible with an app available on Apple and Google app stores for a low, one-off fee. 

So far, over a thousand Biblical Mastery Academy members have experienced success with our vocabulary acquisition approach, as it has helped them read confidently in Hebrew and Greek! 

But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what Hilary, a Greek Mastery Member, says about this vocabulary system… 

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.

The Greek Study Membership makes learning to read and study Greek for 20% of the seminary price

(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 Study Membership… 

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

If you paid the annual fee, that’d be $330 a year. 

So if you stayed in the Greek Study Membership for four years, your grand total would be $1,320. 

That’s just 20.3% of what I paid for only seven classes of seminary…

And for a far more thorough education in biblical Greek than I ever got!

Right now, the Greek Study Membership is just $30/month or $330/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.

In Christ, 

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.

P.S. You can join us, risk-free with our 30-day money back guarantee.

If you join and don’t LOVE the membership, you can change your mind within the first 30 days and we’ll give you a full refund.


What if I can't make the cohort calls?

We record all our calls and make them available to members shortly after they finish, and many members simply follow cohorts by watching replays. Our beginning Greek and Milestones are all designed for self-study, but we provide the cohort calls for those who want or need accountability. You can also switch between cohorts if a new one starts that you’d like to switch to. No registration is required, and no attendance is taken.

Can I Cancel My Monthly Membership Any Time?

Yes, you can cancel your monthly membership at any point by filling in our cancellation form. When you cancel, you must acknowledge you will lose your current pricing. One of the benefits of being a member is that the price will never go up for you. 

Can I Pay Annually?

Yes, you can pay annually and save one month per year. The savings is our way of saying thanks to you for your commitment!

Will I Need To Buy Any Other Resources?

Yes, you will need two apps: ParseGreek and Flashcards Deluxe from the App Store or Google Play store. 

You will also need Beginning With New Testament Greek by Merkle and Plummer if you are going through Beginning Greek. 

Do I Have To Start With Beginning Greek?

Not at all. The membership is designed to be flexible! If you’ve finished Beginning Greek we normally recommend that you start from Milestone 1, but we can also give you access to Beginning Greek to brush up on the basics if you need it. Just reach out to our support team at support (at) after you join and we’ll help you out.

I'm Already Studying Greek. Will This Be Beneficial To Me?

If you are studying Greek in seminary or college, the Greek Study Membership can be a great way to keep your Greek and go further than your academic course will take you. Many seminary students enroll with us to learn reading skills they often don’t learn in their courses. 

If you’re self-studying, you will be surprised at how much faster you can learn with our complete systematic approach!

We believe that by teaching you the original languages of the Bible, you will develop a richer understanding of the Word, a greater love for Christ, and more clarity and confidence in your knowledge of scripture.

These benefits flow from us to you and from you to those you know, love and serve. 

We’d love to serve you and help you develop your love for Christ and His Word!
