The Missing Prophecies in the Synagogue Haftarah Readings
Although it is obvious from the New Covenant that the Messianic prophecies in the Nevi'im were at one time read and known, for many, many centuries, they have not been read publicly. Sadly, Isaiah 60:1–2, which Jesus/Yeshua read in Nazareth, is one that has been omitted from the Haftarah readings. So have the following prophecies concerning the Messiah:
The Suffering Servant (Isaiah 52:13–53:12)
“Just as there were many who were appalled at Him—His appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being and His form marred beyond human likeness.” (Isaiah 52:14)
The Virgin Birth (Isaiah 7:14)
“The Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call Him Immanuel [God with us].”
The Messiah Is to Be Born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2)
"But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for Me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times."
Messiah Rides into Jerusalem on a Donkey (Zechariah 9:9)
“Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”
Betrayed for 30 Pieces of Silver (Zechariah 11:13)
“The LORD said to me, 'Throw it to the potter'—the handsome price at which they valued Me! So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them to the potter at the house of the LORD.”
The New Covenant (Jeremiah 31:31-34)
“The days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah. ... I will put My law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be My people. ... I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.”
The Arrival of Messiah (Malachi 3:1)
"I will send My messenger, who will prepare the way before Me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to His temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come," says the LORD Almighty.
Several more Messianic prophecies that clearly point to Jesus/Yeshua have been intentionally omitted from the weekly synagogue Haftarah readings without public knowledge or the consent of most Jewish people. These continual omissions show that the leadership of the synagogues know that Jesus is the Jewish Messiah!!
