What members say about the beginning Greek course

I have just finished the Beginning Greek Course. I had taught myself Greek many years ago, but lost nearly all of my reading ability by over-relying on electronic tools. I have tried to go back and work on my own, but never got very far. One of the big advantages of Darryl's Master New Testament Greek system is that he provides a total system, including tools and techniques to aid in learning the Greek vocabulary and grammar. The weekly check in sessions review the translations from Mounce's Workbook were so valuable - even if they did include the dreaded sentences 11-12! Darryl structures the course to help you succeed - and this is only the beginning. I will be going on to Intermediate Greek in a couple of weeks, as well as starting the work on Milestone 1. I highly recommend this program if you want to really learn how to read, understand, and master New Testament Greek. It is well worth the work - the reward is great.

What members say about the intermediate Greek course

The intermediate course crystallized many elements of Koine Greek grammar for me. This is my second time going through an intermediate course (the first was in seminary), and using "Intermediate Greek Grammar" by Mathewson and Emig was helpful in solidifying concepts simply and concisely since it doesn't overload the student with exegetical categories. Instead it helps the student toward reading the text "exegetically" (as Darryl would say). The most helpful part of the course was the weekly exercise work and video calls that focused on the grammatical concepts for that week. This solidified what we learned in a hands-on way. My confidence in recognizing grammatical concepts as I read the New Testament is at an all-time high because of this Intermediate Course!

The Intermediate Greek course has helped me gain a greater appreciation for how the Greek language works. Knowing this has brought a depth to my study of the Greek NT that was missing in years past.
Ken Neighoff

The Intermediate Greek Course has given me exciting new insights into Koine! Though the content challenged me continually, what I’ve gained (and will continue to gain) from this course is invaluable for understanding the message of Scripture. I believe it’s a necessity for anyone who engages with Koine Greek at a preaching/teaching level. The work is hard but Dr. Burling is gracious and able to teach with clarity. I’m so glad I signed up for this course, no doubt you will be too!

I would strongly urge anyone looking for an opportunity to deepen their understanding of Biblical Greek to take this course. Having tried other fine courses available online, I am an enthusiastic supporter of THIS course. Darryl is a gifted teacher, who is passionate about helping his students understand the content of the course. My understanding of Greek syntax has grown! I’ve added around 500 words to my vocabulary! Translated dozens of passages, and when I finish in a couple of weeks, I will have read 5 New Testament books! All in a matter of 14 weeks! If you are considering it, take the plunge, it is well worth it!

What do members say?

“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. This even helps with parsing - it's much more tempting to quickly give up on trying to parse difficult forms if you're unsure if this is a word you actually know. Of course, growing in ability with Koine Greek is about more than just learning vocabulary, and in the membership program, Darryl Burling's videos, and pointers to grammars and other resources help here too, explaining things which are difficult to understand, but also in highlighting important points of grammar and syntax that might otherwise be missed. The result of all this is that Master New Testament Greek, and especially the membership program, is an excellent way of gaining fluency in reading the Greek New Testament.”

I've learned Greek at Bible college back in 2004-2006 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 Mastery Membership at Master NT Greek. What I really like about MNTG 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. Its teacher Darryl Burling is really knowledgable, friendly, helpful and he really wants you to be able to read the entire GNT 3.The MNTG community - learning Greek in the courses together with other people who are passionate about the GNT really spurs me on. Since joining the MNTG programme 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.

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.

Master New Testament Greek has the best methodology for distance learning. We learn through the best mix of self paced, group and 1:1 interaction. Apps allow focused reinforcement of weak areas. Videos to help understand instructor approach and expertise. It's economical - pay as you go and only for as long as you want Minimal up front and total costs. Resources purchased (grammars, lexicons) are useful beyond class.

A sustainable system…

If you want to learn to read the Greek New Testament with fluency, then Master New Testament Greek by Dr. Darryl Burling is perfect for you. My personal experience with the MNTG program and interaction with Dr. Burling has been exceedingly positive in all respects. After two years in the 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.!

My ability and confidence to read the Greek text has grown exponentially

“I have really grown to enjoy Master New Testament Greek. As I have progressed through the lessons, my ability and confidence to read the Greek text has grown exponentially. I feel much more comfortable. At first I did not do my quiet time in Greek because it was such a slog to get through it, so much so that I was counter productive to the purpose of communing with the Lord. However, now it is much more illuminating and enjoyable. I have completed the process through Philemon, so I am still relatively new. Also I am 65 years old, so if I can do it so can all of you youngsters! Finally, I want to give a shout to Darryl for all of his hard work.”

[This] has made it possible for me to maintain and grow my mastery of the Greek

“The Master New Testament Greek program allows you to do just that. 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 MNTG 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.”

A consistent, rewarding and sustainable approach to learning Greek

“I began learning NT Greek close to 40 years ago. I learned the basics and used my knowledge to help with word studies and reading the Word in Greek. I never got to the point where I could just read without having to refer back to lexicons. This Mastery approach has been very helpful to me, in that I have developed a daily habit of learning vocabulary at a pace that is manageable with the reward of being able to read some epistles without having to use my software to get definitions. I've only read through 5 books in this course so far, but I already notice a big difference in my other readings in Greek as well. The flashcard program for memorizing is very useful. It uses swiping to go through the vocabulary, so one can quickly swipe through known words and only linger over ones that need help. After the words are initially learned then they return at intervals, so that there is always some review. I have found this a very effective flash card app. The Mastery approach has furnished me with a consistent, rewarding and sustainable approach to learning Greek.”
