Abstract Just as the story of Joseph is the "best of stories," the metaphor of Joseph is the "best of metaphors": it is the most comprehensive, pervasive symbol and allegory of the Báb, Bahá’u’lláh, and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in the Bahá’í Writings.
Notes Slides from a presentation given August 27, 2022, for the 8th Annual Raymond Flournoy Course on Islam and the Bahá’í Faith, organized and hosted by Todd Lawson on behalf of the Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Montréal.
