NOTESMirrored with permission from academia.edu.
About: In a Zoom webinar presented on Sunday, September 18, 2022, this 95-slide PowerPoint (created in Apple's Keynote app) focuses on three key Bahá’í texts:
  • Text #1:
      Talk Given by Abdu’l-Baha in Port Sa’id on 19 June 1913:
        At most, one would object that the Gospel includes similar teachings, to which we would reply, “Among these teachings is the oneness of humanity; in which of the Books [of the New Testament] can this be found? Show us! And universal peace—in what Book is this written? And that religion must be the cause of love and fellowship, and that without these the lack of religion would be preferable—in which Book is this stated? And that religion must accord with sound reason and accurate science—in what Book is this mentioned? And equality between men and women—in which Book does one find this? And the abandonment of sectarian, religious, national, political, and racial prejudices—what Book contains this?” And so on and so forth. — ʻAbdu’l-Bahá (Provisional translation by Adib Masumian.)
  • Text #2:
      On 15 November 1912, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá was asked:
        “What has Bahá’u’lláh brought that we have not heard before?” (The Promulgation of Universal Peace)
  • Text #3:
      On 2 December 1912, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá was asked:
        “You have asked me what new principles have been revealed by Him.” (Bahá’u’lláh)
