I heard that some Goarch Parishes read 3 Prophesies out of the 15 OT Prophesies of Christ's resurrection..
why? To cut down the Time of the Liturgy?

The fact of the matter is that everyone does some form of shortening of liturgical services (just don't tell anyone in ROCOR that, it can cause heartattacks).  My complaint with the way things are usually butchered in modern parish usage is that the wrong things are kept and the right things omitted.

Well, if I remember correctly, the 3 that are chosen are the ones that are done at the Patriarchate... I think the expectation is that the monks will do all, but the parishes won't.  I think it goes to the belief that there are different needs between the parish and monastery churches.
In this case, the 3 readings that are chosen are the best of the 13 or whatever there are... so it didn't come about by haphazard practice or Liturgical butchering, just a response to the pastoral needs.  I think most of us in our zeal would like to see longer services with less (or nothing) cut - but the fact of the matter is that, pastorally, it is probably not what is in the best interests of the people.  For some groups, OT readings were cut; for others, the method of chanting was changed/cut.
