Member Review

Stephen Hackett, a Mastery Member who also has a YouTube channel, created this independent review of Master New Testament Greek .

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.!

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.​

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.

If you have a longing to read the Greek NT, which our gracious God has gifted us with, and you are looking for a strategy to help you achieve that goal, Master NT Greek is a most excellent resource. I have been blessed by this resource by being given an organized strategy, whereby I learn the vocabulary to the Holy Spirit-inspired Word I desire to read and then actually read it. Thanks be to Christ Jesus for his servants who help us toward greater clarity and enjoyment of the living and abiding Word!

I studied NT Greek for several years on my own using a variety of methods and making little progress. MNTG has exceeded my expectations. Now I am making progress in learning NT Greek. Interacting with others on the same journey is a huge blessing. Darryl has developed an excellent program with an encouraging environment in which I feel excited to learn. It is a thrill to be able to read a book of the NT in Greek.

Over the years, I have reviewed beginning Greek three times, and intermediate Greek once. On vocabulary I either used software or an interlinear. In trying to learn vocabulary I went occurrence with flashcards, and browsed methods that used cognates or even semantic domains (words with similar meanings). I even tried a method of ‘spoken conversational Koine’. But none of these led to actually reading a chapter of Greek, for that I simply followed an interlinear. I have just spent two months using the MNTG method, and have read the letters of John, 2nd Thessalonians, and Philemon. I take about 30 minutes during the day, a few minutes at a time, using a flashcard program on my phone, and another half hour reading Greek. I read (and re-read) the passages, and perhaps have to look up a word or two per chapter (and I am improving on that). What a blessing!

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. 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.”
