189: "We have variously and repeatedly set forth the meaning of every theme, that perchance every soul, whether high or low, may obtain, according to his measure and capacity, his share and portion thereof. Should he be unable to comprehend a certain argument, he may, thus, by referring unto another, attain his purpose. “That all sorts of men may know where to quench their thirst.” (Baha'u'llah, Book of Certitude) Resurrection awareness 9:9 Jesus gave them orders not to tell anyone what they had seen until the Son of Man had risen from the dead. 9:10 They kept the matter to themselves, discussing what 'rising from the dead' meant. (NIV, Mark) The Bab said: "For example, from the inception of the mission of Jesus—may peace be upon Him—till the day of His ascension was the Resurrection of Moses." Bahá'í Reference Library - Selections From the Writings of the Báb, Pages 106-108 12:26 Now about the dead rising—have you not read in the book of Moses, in the account of the bush, how God said to him, 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? He is not the God of the dead, but of the living. (NIV, Mark) "When the Apostle of God appeared, He did not announce unto the unbelievers that the Resurrection had come, for they could not bear the news. That Day is indeed an infinitely mighty Day, for in it the Divine Tree proclaimeth from eternity unto eternity, ‘Verily, I am God. No God is there but Me’." Bahá'í Reference Library - Selections From the Writings of the Báb, Pages 78-79 186: "And it came to pass that on a certain day a needy man came to visit this Soul, craving for the ocean of His knowledge. While conversing with him, mention was made concerning the signs of the Day of Judgment, Resurrection, Revival, and Reckoning. He urged Us to explain how, in this wondrous Dispensation, the peoples of the world were brought to a reckoning, when none were made aware of it. Thereupon, We imparted unto him, according to the measure of his capacity and understanding, certain truths of Science and ancient Wisdom. We then asked him saying: “Hast thou not read the Qur’án, and art thou not aware of this blessed verse: ‘On that day shall neither man nor spirit be asked of his Sin?’ (Qur’án 55:39) Dost thou not realize that by ‘asking’ is not meant asking by tongue or speech, even as the verse itself doth indicate and prove? For afterward it is said: ‘By their countenance shall the sinners be known, and they shall be seized by their forelocks and their feet (Qur’án 55:41).’” (Baha'u'llah, Book of Certitude) Bahá'í Reference Library - The Kitáb-i-Íqán, Pages 161-200 186-189 are some of my favorite lines from The Book of Certitude thus far. It just makes the "meaning of the themes" make sense. Notice that Baha'u'llah is asking his readers to ponder verses of scripture with and understanding heart. Besides Baha'u'llah and the Bab, I have been thinking that maybe it is good to stay away from other commentators of scripture. I can't remember reading a commentary on the bible that tells me to "reflect" or read with my "heart". The verses above also remind me of Baha'u'llah talking about the resurrection of mankind. . .
