Biblical Hebrew or Modern Hebrew?

Hello. I have been wondering which of these languages would be better to
learn first.
I hope to obtain a good (if not fluent) knowledge of Modern Hebrew some
day, and I would also like to be able to read the Tanakh in its original
Hebrew. But which would be better to learn first, would learning Biblical
Hebrew make it easier to learn Modern Hebrew since a lot of the grammar
and vocabulary are the same, or the other way round?
