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.
