If you honestly believe that God is so Great, then why not let the Bible speak for itself?
Did you know that Isaiah 53, which so precisely predicts a suffering Messiah that accurately reflects Jesus, was removed from the Jewish HafTorah daily readings? Jewish apologists often argue that it was never there. However, research into the history of the HafTorah daily readings shows that not only was it considered a prediction, within the Jewish community, in 1200 A.D., but also part of the HafTorah daily readings, until around 1500 AD. Today, most Jewish synagogues continue to leave out Isaiah 53, as part of their HafTorah reading, while others are not afraid of their congregation having the whole truth. If you honestly believe that God is so Great, then why not let the Bible speak for itself?
