Book of a Name

Hi all,

When I was on pilgrimage, one of the guides told me a story. He said that according to a prophecy, the Promised One would write His name in a boo. So the Templars put out a book and put two persons to guard it (to keep away pranksters). I was told that one day Bahaullah, when in Haifa, walked by this book. The persons guarding the book had fallen asleep. Bahaullah walked up to the book and wrote His name in it. When the persons guarding the book woke up they were upset and so on. They removed the book for some reason.

I can't find any reference for this story. No where. I asked the guide and was told it is in Revelation of Bahaullah but I can't find anything there about it.

Have any of you heard any story like this and more importantly, do you have any reference?

much obliged

Haven't heard that story, but will be interested to see who else has, and if it in the Writings somewhere!
Best Regards!

Dear friend I have never heard this story, There are many stories I have heard circulating that have no proof. Unless you can find an authentic quote disregard it.
