What is this revolutionary Vocabulary System?

The Greek Vocab Pack is a vocabulary system takes you systematically through the Greek New Testament from the easiest books to learn and read to the most difficult. 

With Biblical Mastery Academy’s custom glosses designed so that you can learn a word once and have a reliable gloss for every occurrence of the same word, this system has helped hundreds of people master books of the New Testament.

This system is embedded in the Greek Mastery Membership courses to give you the best advantages to master Greek.

How you'll read easier with this system...

Learn Words By Book

The Greek Vocab Pack offers 8 paths of learning vocabulary, the primary one being “by book”. This means if you already know the words down to 20 occurrences you can just add the words you don’t know in each book. Or if you only know the words that occur 50x or more, then you can build on that knowledge by learning the words for 1 John chapter by chapter (the easiest book in the Greek New Testament).

Once you have learned the vocabulary and read through 1 John, you move on to learning the vocabulary for the next book, then the next, and so on until you have build the knowledge and experience to read the hardest books in the Greek New Testament (did you know that Acts has the most challenging vocabulary in the whole Greek New Testament?).

Learn With Spaced Repetition

The app which we encourage you to use to learn your vocabulary (Flashcards Deluxe) has a function called Spaced Repetition, which helps you learn a word once, then review it from time to time. The spaces between reviews get longer the more you get each word correct, meaning that you don’t even have to think about which words to review – it’s all automatic!

Learn Thousands of Words With Ease

If you are going to learn all the vocabulary for the Greek New Testament, eventually your knowledge of vocabulary will exceed 1000 words, then 2000, until you get to around ~5,300 unique words in total.

There is no way to effectively manage learning such a large body of vocabulary without a system that does the hard work for you. With the Greek Vocab Pack, all your vocabulary is stored and your progress is recorded in one place, making it much easier for you to learn, review and add vocabulary as you go.

You would get a stack 16 feet and 9 inches high if you made paper flashcards for each of the more than 5300 unique words in the GNT.

When you use an app, all those words fit into your pocket, always perfectly sorted and ordered.

This System Has Even Received Attention From Scholars! Here's What They Say...

While I was teaching the difficult Greek of 2 Peter to a group of graduate students, I was impressed with how one student showed real familiarity with the vocabulary, especially the rarely used words. So I asked the student how he was able to master the vocabulary so well and he told me about his Greek vocabulary acquisition method. Now that student, Darryl Burling, is ready to share that method with you. Learning vocabulary is probably the greatest obstacle to fluently reading the NT in its original language. I heartily recommend Darryl’s method and encourage you to use it!

I'm impressed with Darryl Burling's method of tying vocabulary acquisition to a graded reading of actual New Testament texts. It's true that students learn vocabulary best when it overlaps with their reading of Scripture, and they need to start with easier texts and build to more complex ones. I will recommend this resource to my students.

Any tool that can help students to master the vocabulary of the Greek New Testament is a good thing. Carefully designed for this purpose, the Greek Vocab Pack is one of the best tools available today. Highly recommended.
