Proven and Respected

If you’re wondering how my reading is going... I wake up, read 1 1/2 verses in the GNT, get mind blown, walk around with mind blown, write sermon.

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.

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!

Master New Testament Greek has transformed how I read the Greek New Testament. No longer frustrated by passages full of unfamiliar vocabulary, sometimes feeling like I'm looking up almost every word, now I can come to the text with the confidence that I know a basic gloss for every word.

Mastering New Testament Greek with Darryl has given me a community in which to learn and discuss Greek. I have found Darryl knowledge, helpful and flexible as I refreshed my beginning Greek and start my goal of reading the New Testament fluently. I have felt motivated to learn and put in the hard work required to cement the concepts of Greek in my mind rather than rely on reading helps. I would recommend this course to anyone wishing to start the exciting journey of learning New Testament Greek. Thank you Darryl and fellow students.

Why learn to read the Greek New Testament?

There are numerous benefits of actually reading the Greek New Testament. Which of these benefits interests you most?

Clarity

Much biblical understanding is lost in translation. A translation is like a commentary on the Bible without footnotes. That means that the difference between reading Greek and reading in English is like the difference between a 1950's black and white television compared to a modern 4k HDTV.

Themes in scripture are often clearer when you can see the commonalities between lexical ideas and repeated use of constructions. You'll see ideas come to life and passages connect like you never have before.

Confidence

Those who don't know Greek are dependent upon those who can read it. That means that pastors and teachers must choose between the different scholarly opinions and interpretations without first hand knowledge.

The ability to exegete the Greek certainly helps, but nothing compares to the confidence that comes from a rich first hand working knowledge of the original language. Confidence comes not merely from knowing Greek, but knowing the word of God in the Greek.

Efficiency

It takes time to do exegesis properly. While this will always be necessary, you can speed up the process by having a lower dependence on tools. A fluency in the language helps you quickly see where to focus your attention, and which grammatical constructions are significant.

The clarity and confidence you will gain from reading will flow into the study, helping you use tools to come to better conclusions in less time. This frees you to spend more time applying your understanding of scripture to the lives of those you minister to.

Vitality

If you can read Greek, you can get clarity and confidence to feed your own soul. Don't just read Greek for the sake of study. Read the Greek New Testament in your own devotional times. Sure, the Greek of the New Testament is unfamiliar, but that will make the message fresh and challenge you to grow in new ways!

As you read the language, not only will it help you understand the text of the New Testament, but you'll begin to understand the mindset of the readers. Reading Greek in your devotional time will enrich not only your life, but also your ministry and those you minister to.

Faithfulness

As your knowledge of the word of God is enriched by your reading of the Greek New Testament, your clarity and confidence in scripture will increase your conviction about the truthfulness of what God says in His Word.

This results in an increased desire to please the Lord in every aspect of your life. As your desire to please the Lord grows, your faithfulness to Him and His Word will increase. The best way become and remain a faithful shepherd is to grow in your own conviction of the importance of God's holiness and His calling on your life.
