O Jews! If Ye Be Intent On Crucifying Once

O Jews! If ye be intent on crucifying once again Jesus, the Spirit of God,

put Me to death, for He hath once more, in My person, been made manifest

unto you. Deal with Me as ye wish, for I have vowed to lay down My life in

the path of God. I will fear no one, though the powers of earth and heaven

be leagued against Me. Followers of the Gospel! If ye cherish the desire

to slay Muhammad, the Apostle of God, seize Me and put an end to My life,

for I am He, and My Self is His Self. Do unto Me as ye like, for the

deepest longing of Mine heart is to attain the presence of My Best-Beloved

in His Kingdom of Glory. Such is the Divine decree, if ye know it.

Followers of Muhammad! If it be your wish to riddle with your shafts the

breast of Him Who hath caused His Book the Bayan to be sent down unto you,

lay hands on Me and persecute Me, for I am His Well-Beloved, the

revelation of His own Self, though My name be not His name. I have come in

the shadows of the clouds of glory, and am invested by God with invincible

sovereignty. He, verily, is the Truth, the Knower of things unseen. I,

verily, anticipate from you the treatment ye have accorded unto Him that

came before Me. To this all things, verily, witness, if ye be of those who

hearken. O people of the Bayan! If ye have resolved to shed the blood of

Him Whose coming the Bab hath proclaimed, Whose advent Muhammad hath

prophesied, and Whose Revelation Jesus Christ Himself hath announced,

behold Me standing, ready and defenseless, before you. Deal with Me after

your own desires.
