1. Baha'u'llah is Christ Returned and therefore claims the same spiritual identity of "Christ" (meaning the "Anointed One"). (11:3)

2. "And I will write on him My new name.." (rev 3:12) [The returned Christ will bear a new name] (11:4) see

3. "I still have many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit, when He the Spirit of Truth is come, he will guide you unto all truth." (joh 16:12-13) [Jesus says that "He" will guide you after "I" go away] (11:5) see

4. New Names are the norm for such fulfillments. Isaiah prophesied that the Messiah's name would be Emmanuel (which means "God with us") (isa 7:14)and not Jesus ("He who saves") [names are Titles in the Bible, rather than surnames, and are descriptive of the roles they are to play] (11:6)

5. Christ in both His first and Returned appearance had many names: "..And his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.." (isa 6-9:6) "His name is called the 'Word of God'" (rev 19:13) "And He has on His robe and on His thigh a new name written: 'King of kings and Lord of Lords'" (rev 19:16) (11:7) see
