    One of the most interesting questions in Bahá'í theology is concerning the concept of Manifestation and especially the relation between Bahá'u'lláh and the other divine Manifestations. There are some quotations in the Writings of Bahá'u'lláh that hint at a superiority of Bahá'u'lláh. But how can they be understood in the light of His other statements underlining the oneness of all the Messengers of God and Bahá'u'lláh's emphatic request not to make any difference between the divine manifestations'? The question will be dealt with in reference to these quotations.
