Greek Mastery Testimonials
The system that Darryl has developed for getting through the Greek grammar, syntax, and, most of all, the vocabulary is simply brilliant. Not only do you work through all the vocabulary in Greek, but you also get to read through the Greek New Testament as you do it. It is SO rewarding to know for a fact that my learning is actually working and satisfying my desire for Greek.
Within a few weeks of starting with the Greek Mastery Membership, I was amazed at how much Greek not only came back to me, but actually improved over what I had learned from college and seminary. We were never really taught how to "read" the Greek text. We were taught more so how to "decode" it, which meant I couldn't read even the most basic words. Now I'm learning how to actually read the text! It's amazing.
Before I joined the Greek Mastery Membership, I was struggling with Greek... It is EXACTLY what I had needed all these years... Now, I have the plan I need to guarantee success (as long as I follow it and put in the work of course!), and an added bonus is the community: it is filled with positive people always willing to help me. There are all sorts of tools to help and again, no shortage of community members willing to help you achieve your goals!
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, the milestones, and even the careful order of the books to keep students moving through 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.
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!
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!
I learned Greek in seminary, and I found it so hard that sometimes after class, I would go back to my room and cry, and tell the Lord that I couldn't do it. Then I discovered Biblical Mastery Academy. Now I've just finished Beginning Greek, and I love Greek!

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. 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.
The membership has connected me to a community of dedicated leaners pursuing similar goals at a similar pace, and provided a forum to get help where needed and accountability to stay consistent. Previously I felt isolated in my studies and lacked confidence to advance in the language, now I’m excited to continue progressing and having opportunities to apply my knowledge with my peers.
Hebrew Mastery Testimonials
I'm enjoying this course very much, and I actually find myself looking forward to sitting down with my textbook and reading the chapter, watching the instructional videos, and engaging with others in the weekly call sessions. If you've ever thought about possibly learning Biblical Hebrew, but wondered if it might be too difficult, let me encourage you to take the plunge and join in. I'm 63 years old and feel like a young man of 20 again as I'm seeing the Bible come alive through nuances that aren't readily apparent in English translation. It's a well done program!
While I had two courses prior study of BH using Zondervan's online course, the emphasis on reading is much stronger in the Hebrew Mastery Membership course. As a result, I feel my ability to read the text has gotten much stronger, while going back over some of the same material I had in Practico and Van Pelt.
I am currently half way through the Beginning Hebrew course and it has been really helpful. All I knew of Hebrew before I started was the alphabet so was not able to read any of the OT in its original language. There is freedom to do things at your own pace and there are slower paced courses which means it is geared to whatever your aims are. Now I am beginning to read simple passages from the OT and that is amazing.
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.
I like the whole online Academy concept. I have learned so much! The book club is awesome too. Frank and Darryl are great instructors. I WILL be renewing my membership in the years to come and will study Greek here too when the time is right for me. I need to learn at my own pace with my learning disabilities where the structure of the Academy helps me. The relaxed atmosphere is conducive to learning for me too.
I now enjoy looking at any portion of the Old Testament and attempt to read it correctly (even before I have looked at all the vocabulary) to see if there any words I know. I was pleased to be able to read a whole sentence from Jonah that was being preached on in my church!
I started this course with no Hebrew background. In the first 15 lessons we learned some basic underpinnings of the language. I appreciate that from the fourth lesson on, we have been translating large sections of the story of Joseph from Genesis each week, using a text that has been edited to make it accessible to students at our level. Every time we learn a new concept, we put it to work by translating scripture. Every week, the text we read becomes more like the full complex, Biblical Hebrew text. While I am far from mastering the language, I am always encouraged by seeing progress as we read a new chapter. And as I wrestle with the reading, I have the joy of meditating on the story of Joseph.
