Dear colleagues,

I am looking for input for pedagogical purposes:

How would you rank the books of the Hebrew Scriptures based on degree of difficutly?

1. How would you rank the texts of the Hebrew Scriptures based on LINGUISTIC DIFFICULTY?

2. How would you rank the texts of the Hebrew Scriptures based on EXEGETICAL or INTERPRETIVE DIFFICULTY?

Please note that I am not looking for input regarding why one needs to learn Hebrew. I already read Classical Hebrew, and I am quite convinced already that such knowledge is essential.

Thank you for your help.

Shalom!

Also shalom.

Like I said, I can't help you here. I don't speak Hebrew, lets stand alone old Hebrew, but I read the articles, and especially of interest was the one about Genesis, in which it was claimed that the creation of the universe/world was wrong interpreted. So, I will follow your thread with much interest, but I doubt if you will get a lot of answers.

Kind regards,

Rob

PS) I would rank both of them as "disputable", but as I indicated, what do I know about it.
