Baha'u'llah & the New Era by -J. Esslemont- 1 Para

The religion of God is the One Religion, and all the Prophets have taught it, but it is a living and growing thing, not lifeless and unchanging. In the teaching of Moses we see the Bud; in that of Christ the Flower; in that of Baha'u'llah the Fruit. The flower does not destroy the bud, nor does the fruit destroy the flower. It destroys not, but fulfills.. Were the bud and.. petals wrong or useless..? Nay, both in their time were right and necessary; without them there could have been no fruit.. they are.. different stages in the life history of One Religion.. (123:3)
