I'm wondering if anyone might have an answer to the following Baha'i question. If you do you can email me the information. It has to do with the genealogy of Baha'u'llah of which was asked of me. In the Bible - genesis 17, 20-21, it says:" And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee; Behold I have blesses him and made him fruitful and will multiply him exceedingly; ... But my covenant will I establish with Isaac ..."
Now we know that Baha'u'llah's genealogy goes back to Abraham, but through Ishmael. Christians say Baha'u'llah can't be who He says he is because His genealogy doesn't go through Isaac but through Ishmael. Could you clarify this for me? Thanks in advance!
In His service,
