In a recent Baha’i World News Service article, we learned that three graphics that can be used for celebrations of the bicentenary of the Birth of the Bab were recently shared on the Baha’i Media Bank. The Baha’i World Centre also released 43 images associated with the life and mission of the Bab (we shared some of them here) and aerial footage of the Shrine of the Bab (which we turned into this short video).
The Bab, which means “the Gate” in Arabic, was a Messenger of God, whose role can be likened to that of John the Baptist (who told of the coming of Christ) in heralding the coming of the latest Manifestation of God: Baha’u’llah.
This year marks the bicentennial of the Birth of the Bab, so Baha’is around the world will undoubtedly be celebrating this special occasion, and we are always grateful when the Baha’i World Centre releases media that can potentially be used for this special time.
