185 The School Of Transcendent Oneness #175






In this verse and the ones which immediately follow it, Baha'u'llah
confronts one of the reasons some of the Babis rejected His claim to be
the Promised One of the Bayan. Their rejection was based on a Tablet
addressed by the Bab to Him Who will be made manifest on the reverse
side of which the Bab had written: May the glances of Him Whom God shall
make manifest illumine this letter at the primary school. This Tablet is
published in Selections from the Writings of the Bab.

These Babis maintained that, since Baha'u'llah was two years older than
the Bab, it was not possible for Him to receive this Tablet at the
primary school.

Baha'u'llah here explains that the reference is to events transpiring in
the spiritual worlds beyond this plane of existence.
