What members say

A sustainable system

I strongly commend MNTG to anyone who desires to know God more deeply through His Word. Darryl has created a sustainable system that will inevitably lead to both a greater understanding of the Greek language and spiritual growth when consistency is applied. This is my experience and I am confident that it will only get better over time.

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

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.

Members who have been transformed

Master New Testament Greek has transformed how I read the Greek New Testament

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.

My ability and confidence... 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.

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.
