Ch 5 Vs 110 (The Call to Isa)

إِذْ قَالَ اللَّهُ يَا عِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ اذْكُرْ نِعْمَتِي عَلَيْكَ وَعَلَى وَالِدَتِكَ إِذْ أَيَّدْتُكَ بِرُوحِ الْقُدُسِ تُكَلِّمُ النَّاسَ فِي الْمَهْدِ وَكَهْلا وَإِذْ عَلَّمْتُكَ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَالتَّوْرَاةَ وَالإِنْجِيلَ وَإِذْ تَخْلُقُ مِنَ الطِّينِ كَهَيْئَةِ الطَّيْرِ بِإِذْنِي فَتَنْفُخُ فِيهَا فَتَكُونُ طَيْرًا بِإِذْنِي وَتُبْرِئُ الأَكْمَهَ وَالأَبْرَصَ بِإِذْنِي وَإِذْ تُخْرِجُ الْمَوْتَى بِإِذْنِي وَإِذْ كَفَفْتُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ عَنْكَ إِذْ جِئْتَهُمْ بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ فَقَالَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْهُمْ إِنْ هَذَا إِلا سِحْرٌ مُبِينٌ
Isa, being the prototype of the rusul (and hence mentioned here) is called by Allah. Isa is to vivify (possibly in his mind) Allah’s bounties upon him and his source (mother) when Allah gave him the capacity with the ruh al-quddus (the sanctifying spirit – found in 16/102). Isa spoke to people in the cradle and maturity. He was taught about the existing system and the way to get the most out of it and also the ignition and the verdance (how to activate Allah’s system and have it grow).
Isa also evolved from clay like the form of a bird , breathed into it and it essentially become a bird with My (Allah’s) permission (symbolising forming the destiny of a person or people through the power of breathe perhaps), curing the blind and a leper (showing that curing vision and health or social standing) and even the dead (symbolising giving us a purpose in life) .
Allah also restrained bani israil when they rejected Isa and said this ‘this is clear magic’. This shows that ‘ahmad’ in 61/6 can be formulated with the above ‘miracles’.
