Missionaries: The Hidden Chapters of the Tanakh
This intriguing topic on “the Hidden Chapters” claimed by missionaries is discussed by Rabbi Tovia Singer on Tenak Talk. Missionaries who target Jews for conversion claim that the Jews purposefully removed Isaiah 53 from the Sabbath Haftorah reading. They argue that the rabbis are so scared that worshipers, upon hearing Isaiah 53 read from the pulpit, might bolt from their synagogues and head for the nearest Christian baptismal pool. In fact, Messianic groups insist that rabbis conspired to conceal Daniel 9 and Zechariah 12:10 as well! Are these charges valid? In this powerful presentation, Rabbi Tovia Singer explores Scripture and Jewish history as he demonstrates that these well-worn claims are absurd and fabricated.
