Quran Proves Jesus is Only Human.
That which is indisputably clear is, Jesus saw himself purely as a man
just as did the prophet Muhammad e. In
Islam the Quran has stated frequently that Jesus was just a prophet :
"Say ye, "We believe in Allah and the Revelation given to us,
and to Ibrahim, Ismail, I`saac, Yakub and the Tribes and that given to
Musa and I`sa (Jesus) and that given to (all) prophets from their Lord.
We make no difference between one and another of them and we submit to
"And Zakariya and Yahya and I`sa (Jesus) and Ilyas : All in the
ranks of the Righteous." (6:85)
The Quran also states that Jesus, like Adam,
was created :
"She said, O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man has
ever touched me.?" Even so, Allah created what He wills, when He has decreed
a matter, He but says to it, "BE!" and it is!" (3:47)
"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)
The following verses prove that Jesus could not be the son of God :
"No son did Allah beget, nor is there any God along with Him.
(If there were many gods), behold each god would have taken away, that
he had created and some would have lorded it over others! Glory to Allah!
(He is free) from the (sort of) things they attribute to Him." (23:91)
"He begetteth not, nor is He begotten." (112:3)
The following verse highlights the fact that I`sa confirmed the Divine
messages received before him :
"(I have come to you) To attest the Torah, which was before
me and to make lawful to you, part of what was (before) forbidden to you.
I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, so fear Allah and obey me!"
The fact that Jesus was not one of three persons within a multiple deity,
is confirmed by the following Quranic statements :
"O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion,
nor say of Allah ought 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, "Three," desist, it will be better for you, for Allah is One God,
Glory be to Him (far Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all
things in the heavens and upon the earth. And enough is Allah as a Dispose
of Affairs." (4:171)
"They disbelieve who say, "Allah is one of three (trinity) for
there is no God, except One God. If they desist not from their word (for
blasphemy), verily a grievious chastisement will befall the disbelievers
among them." (5:73)
