comment How different is Biblical Hebrew from modern Hebrew?
Re: your conclusion: Present-Day-English-speaking readers of Shakespeare also misunderstand many things without realizing it. So that really might be the right analogy. (I wonder if there exist any studies examining how well English-speakers understand Shakespeare, and how well Hebrew-speakers understand BH? This seems like it could be quantifiable in a way that allowed for comparisons.)

Re: "MIH [...] (to my understanding) doesn't use the direct-object marker et": That's not true; in fact, MIH uses it much more than BH does. (But BH also has another preposition et, roughly synonymous with im "with", which in MIH has been almost completely superseded by the latter except in inflected forms. Maybe that's what you're thinking of?)
