    Revelation of the Bab

    Progressive Revelation

    From Baha'i Blog: One of the things we often get asked about as Baha’is is our conviction of the principle of the oneness of religion. As it is one of the central teachings laid down by Baha’u’llah, it is of great importance that we are able to understand the implications of seeing all...

    Manifestation - Revelation after death?

    It is well-known that the full title of the last book of the New Testament, the Book of Revelation, is actually "The Revelation of Jesus Christ to John"...

    The Progression of Revelation or Truth?

    Saluton! I understand that each Manifestation brings a slice of divine revelation and that the next one revives the previous teaching with some addition. This renewal and addition seems to say that each Manifestation teaches the same thing as their predecessors (plus a consistent revelation). As...
