Koran and Jesus

Let me quote Koran verses about Jesus. I leave. the interpretation open.

Jesus was born of a virgin
He said: “Nay, I am only a messenger from thy Lord,
(to announce) to thee the gift of a holy son. 20 She
said: “How shall I have a son, seeing that no man
has touched me, and I am not unchaste?” 21 He
said: “So (it will be): Thy Lord saith, ‘that is easy for
Me: and (We wish) to appoint him as a Sign unto
men and a Mercy from Us’: It is a matter (so)
decreed.” (19:19-21)

And (remember) her who guarded her chastity : We
breathed into her of Our spirit, and We made her
and her son a sign for all peoples. (21:91, Yusif Ali)
Jesus strengthened with the Holy Spirit
We gave Moses the Book and followed him up with
a succession of messengers; We gave Jesus the
son of Mary Clear (Signs) and strengthened him
with the holy spirit. Is it that whenever there comes
to you a messenger with what ye yourselves desire
not, ye are puffed up with pride?- Some ye called
impostors, and others ye slay! (2:87, Yusif Ali)
Jesus was given revelation by Allah
He said: “I am indeed a servant of Allah: He hath
given me revelation and made me a prophet.
(19:30, Yusif Ali)

Jesus taken bodily into Heaven
Behold! Allah said: “O Jesus! I will take thee and
raise thee to Myself and clear thee (of the
falsehoods) of those who blaspheme; I will make
those who follow thee superior to those who reject
faith, to the Day of Resurrection: Then shall ye all
return unto me, and I will judge between you of the
matters wherein ye dispute. (3:55, Yusif Ali)

Jesus was created
The similitude of Jesus before Allah is as that of
Adam; He created him from dust , then said to him:
“Be”. And he was. (3:59, Yusif Ali)

Deny Jesus’ Crucifixion
That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the
son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah”;- but they
killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was
made to appear to them, and those who differ
therein are full of doubts, with no (certain)
knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a
surety they killed him not. (4:157,Yusif Ali)
Jesus is no more than a messenger of Allah
O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your
religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ
Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a
messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He
bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from
Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers. Say
not “Trinity” : desist: it will be better for you: for
Allah is one Allah: Glory be to Him: (far exalted is
He) above having a son. To Him belong all things
in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah
as a Disposer of affairs. (4:171, Yusif Ali)
Christ the son of Mary was no more than a
messenger; many were the messengers that
passed away before him. His mother was a woman
of truth. They had both to eat their (daily) food. See
how Allah doth make His signs clear to them; yet
see in what ways they are deluded away from the
truth! (5:575, Yusif Ali)

Jesus was a miracle worker
We have made some of these messengers to excel
the others among them are they to whom Allah
spoke, and some of them He exalted by (many
degrees of) rank; and We gave clear miracles to
Isa1 son of Marium2, and strengthened him with
the holy spirit. And if Allah had pleased, those after
them would not have fought one with another after
clear arguments had come to them, but they
disagreed; so there were some of them who
believed and others who denied; and if Allah had
pleased they would not have fought one with
another, but Allah brings about what He intends.
(2:253, Shakir)

Jesus, Son of Mary, did not say to worship himself
or Mary
And behold! Allah will say: “O Jesus the son of
Mary! Didst thou say unto men, worship me and
my mother as gods in derogation of Allah’?” He
will say: “Glory to Thee! never could I say what I
had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, thou
wouldst indeed have known it. Thou knowest what
is in my heart, Thou I know not what is in Thine.
For Thou knowest in full all that is hidden. (5:116,
Yusif Ali)

Allah sent the Gospel to Jesus
And in their footsteps We sent Jesus the son of
Mary, confirming the Law that had come before
him: We sent him the Gospel : therein was
guidance and light, and confirmation of the Law
that had come before him: a guidance and an
admonition to those who fear Allah. (5:46, Yusif
Ali)
Then, in their wake, We followed them up with
(others of) Our messengers: We sent after them
Jesus the son of Mary, and bestowed on him the
Gospel; and We ordained in the hearts of those
who followed him Compassion and Mercy. But the
Monasticism which they invented for themselves,
We did not prescribe for them: (We commanded)
only the seeking for the Good Pleasure of Allah; but
that they did not foster as they should have done.
Yet We bestowed, on those among them who
believed, their (due) reward, but many of them are
rebellious transgressors. (57:27, Yusif Ali)
You are cursed if you say Jesus is God’s son
The Jews call ‘Uzair a son of Allah, and the
Christians call Christ the son of Allah . That is a
saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate
what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah’s
curse be on them: how they are deluded away from
the Truth! (9:30, Yusif Ali)

Jesus spoke as a child
But she pointed to the babe. They said: “How can
we talk to one who is a child in the cradle? 30 He
said: “I am indeed a servant of God: He hath given
me revelation and made me a prophet” (19:29-30,
Yusif Ali)

Deny Jesus is Son of God
Such (was) Jesus the son of Mary: (it is) a statement
of truth, about which they (vainly) dispute. 35 It is
not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should
beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines
a matter, He only says to it, “Be”, and it is.
(19:34-35, Yusif Ali)

Jesus is the Son of Mary
And remember We took from the prophets their
covenant: As (We did) from thee: from Noah,
Abraham, Moses, and Jesus the son of Mary: We
took from them a solemn covenant: (33:7,Yusif Ali)

Jesus was no more than a Servant
When (Jesus) the son of Mary is held up as an
example, behold, thy people raise a clamour
thereat (in ridicule)! 58 And they say, “Are our gods
best, or he?” This they set forth to thee, only by way
of disputation: yea, they are a contentious people.
59 He was no more than a servant: We granted Our
favour to him, and We made him an example to the
Children of Israel. (43:57-59, Yusif Ali)

Jesus said to obey him
When Jesus came with Clear Signs, he said: “Now
have I come to you with Wisdom, and in order to
make clear to you some of the (points) on which ye
dispute: therefore fear Allah and obey me . (43:63,
Yusif Ali)
