Is anyone aware of a reading plan for the Hebrew Bible (OT) which goes from easiest to most difficult books (or passages)? I am trying to jump in "head first" after two years of formal Hebrew and want to build some momentum/confidence. I was able to get ahold of a GNT schedule which went from easy to hard and that got me started years ago on reading Greek regularly. 

Any help at all is much appreciated!

No, but I'd be interested to know if you find one, and I'm interested in your Greek plan too!

Logos offers the Graded Reader of Hebrew by Pratico and Van Pelt. Perhaps this is close to what you are looking for?

You can find a review of the book here

Thanks MJ, I had the honor of studying under Dr. Wallace and his (very) helpful organization is what caused my itch to find a Hebrew version.  The Hebrew Bible you point out is quite good but doesn't include a reading list per se.

Thanks for the reply Sarel, this is the closest thing I have been able to find yet. The one misgiving I have for this project is that the readings are not exhaustive of the OT. Ideally I would like to develop a habit of reading all of the OT. (I paid for all the pages!)

So true, but still, after working through this book you should be able to be quite competent with most Hebrew passages. This would give you the ability to start with easier passages and work up to harder passages. After that you could start reading the whole Hebrew Bible.

still haven't found one! Consequentially I threw some word list data together and made the below list based upon lexical rarity (after the 500 most common words)

Now this exists online and free! #letthereadingcommence

It appears as if its existence was short-lived Cool.  I get this error:

"Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist. Home"

Irony!

Andrew, the link is broken. Does the list still exist? There is a good Septuagint one that I use, also a NT one. Thanks, Gary

Thanks! I am using a similar sheet for the LXX, my FB group is reading it through from 2019-2020, and I want to go to the Hebrew Scriptures for the following two years. I am not sure how they calculated the LXX sheet.

Blessings, Gary
