Get access to all our courses designed to take you from your starting point to mastery, as well as live Cohorts to take you through each course!
Courses are the bread and butter of our Mastery Memberships. These courses teach the grammar of the languages so you can read, study, exegete and interpret the text.
Get accountability, structure and support while taking any of our courses with a Cohort.
Cohorts are live walk-throughs of course homework with an instructor. We start several cohorts a year for each course.

Frequently Asked Questions
We close the membership so we can focus on serving existing members, but when we have a new cohort starting or other strategic opportunity, we open the Greek Mastery Membership, Hebrew Mastery Membership and Premium Languages Membership. This allows us to focus our attention on paying members. To find out when we next open up one of our memberships, join our mailing list!
We design our memberships to suit the lives of our members.
This means that if you want to self study, you can! If you want to get involved and be on all the live calls, you can do that too!
Once you choose a membership, the relevant courses to you will be immediately available for self study. We'll also let you know when the next cohorts are starting, so that if you want to be part of a group and follow a schedule, you can.
In other words, you can self-study, work with a cohort, switch between these or even switch between cohorts seamlessly. Whatever suits your needs!
Suitable for every level of learner. Best for those who have attained Beginning Hebrew or Beginning Greek and simply want to continue to grow in their language skills through live calls and community interaction.
Greek Mastery Membership:
Great for any level of learner. Regardless of whether know the alphabet or you've been studying Greek for a couple of years, we have courses and lessons to take you all the way to mastery of the Greek New Testament.
Hebrew Mastery Membership:
This is a brand new membership we launched with a Beginning Hebrew course. As members grow, we'll keep adding new courses and cohorts to develop you to mastery of the Hebrew Old Testament.
Right now, the Hebrew Mastery Membership is ideal for those who would like to learn or refresh Hebrew.
Premium Languages Membership:
The Premium Languages Membership is everything in the Greek and Hebrew Mastery Memberships combined. That means you can be a complete newbie and learn both Greek and Hebrew at the same time (which we generally do not recommend). The Premium Languages Membership is designed to be more affordable than paying individually for the Greek and Hebrew Mastery Memberships.
We are all for the use of Greek and Hebrew grammars for studying and learning the languages. We even integrate specific grammars with our courses.
However, learning alone is challenging. On your own there is no accountability, no schedule, and most importantly, no proven system to take you from beginner to mastery. You're left to figure it all out by yourself. Some can do this, but most struggle.
We have had hundreds of members pass through our courses and come out the other side with greater knowledge of the language than when they were self studying using a grammar. Even those who studied the languages in the past find the approach in the memberships takes them well past where they have ever been before!
We use an optimized form of the grammar translate approach with emphasis on reading naturally for fluently. The material is directly from the Greek New Testament and Hebrew Old Testament so that you will be reading phrases and passages directly from scripture right from the start. The live classes provide plenty of opportunity for discussion and the community members and leaders are available for questions in between classes.
Each lesson of our courses or milestones contains:
- A video presentation teaching the material or covering key grammatical concepts in the reading
- A vocabulary deck of digital flashcards
- A written lesson summary
- Homework sheets in PDF or MS Word
Depending on the course you’re taking, the lessons may also be keyed to chapters in a grammar, particularly in Beginning Greek and Beginning Hebrew.
We also have regular live calls to give members additional support as they work through courses.
No, we do not charge any additional costs, nor do we charge per course. We don't provide you with the books (which means we don't provide you with the beginning Greek grammar), or the apps that we strongly recommend, but these are inexpensive one-off costs and everything else is included in your monthly membership fee.
For Beginning Greek, we use Beginning With New Testament Greek by Merkle and Plummer.
We also have a course built around Mounce's Basics of Biblical Greek which you can work through with self-study.
For our Reading Greek course we use Mathewson and Emig's Intermediate Greek.
For Beginning Hebrew we use Learning Biblical Hebrew by Kutz and Josberger.
We use an app called Flashcards Deluxe for vocabulary flashcards, available on the Google Play or Apple App store.
Once you have the app set up with your phone, tablet or even desktop for Apple users, you can download the files of flashcards from the member site. We give you one new file per lesson, eventually adding 30 words a week to your vocabulary knowledge. This helps you quickly gain fluency in reading!
Founder and CEO Dr. Darryl Burling studied Greek in seminary. While he learned to exegete the text, the focus was not on how to read Greek. Seminaries and other courses typically focus on exegesis not reading. Biblical Mastery Academy is one of the only biblical language learning providers with a goal to get members to reading fluency, while also growing a deep understanding of grammar and syntax. Oh, and as you progress, we'll also teach you to exegete the text, but from a languages first approach rather than in your English Bible!
