155 Take Heed Lest Ye Be Prevented By Aught That Hath Been Recorded In The Book From Hearkening Unto This The Living Book #134






The Book is the record of the revealed Word of the Manifestations of
God. The Living Book is a reference to the Person of the Manifestation.

These words contain an allusion to a statement of the Bab in the Persian
Bayan about the Living Book, which He identifies as Him Whom God will
make manifest. In one of His Tablets Baha'u'llah Himself states: The Book
of God hath been sent down in the form of this Youth.

In this verse of the Aqdas, and again in paragraph 168 of the Aqdas,
Baha'u'llah refers to Himself as the Living Book. He cautions the
followers of every other Faith against seeking reasons in their Holy
Books for refuting the utterances of the Living Book. He admonishes the
people not to allow what has been recorded in the Book to prevent them
from recognising His Station and from holding fast to what is in this new
Revelation.
