Clay Birds: Qur’an 5:110 and the Infancy Gospel of Thomas

Qur’an 5:110

[The Day] when Allah will say, “O Jesus, Son of Mary, remember My favor upon you and upon your mother when I supported you with the Pure Spirit and you spoke to the people in the cradle and in maturity; and [remember] when I taught you writing and wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel; and when you designed from clay [what was] like the form of a bird with My permission, then you breathed into it, and it became a bird with My permission; and you healed the blind and the leper with My permission; and when you brought forth the dead with My permission; and when I restrained the Children of Israel from [killing] you when you came to them with clear proofs and those who disbelieved among them said, “This is not but obvious magic.”


Jesus Kills in the Infancy Gospel of Thomas

Many Christians try to claim that Jesus is the ‘prince of peace’ and that killing people would have negated his status of being not only a prophet of God but also his son. They mention this in particular to try to argue that Muhammad (saw) is not a prophet because he participated in wars.

This is obviously an absurd argument because we can just mention the “fatally violent acts” of OT prophets. In addition to this , if  christians claim Jesus is God, why is Jesus ordering people in the OT to rip open the bellies of pregnant women(Hosea 13:16) which further debunks the claim that Jesus does not promote violent acts.  However in this post, I will show in particular that Jesus is killing boys as a child.

Now before I get into the account, let me defend the infancy Gospel of Thomas. In short the infancy Gospel of Thomas, is just as authentic as the Bible we have today :p. You can take that statement however you want, because I am sure most people already know that I have a very low opinion of the authenticity of the Bible.  A more articulated form of what I said, is echoed by a PhD candidate  who is studying the Gospel of Thomas:

“I think that the fact that we are dealing with written records of orally transmitted eyewitness accounts of Jesus’ ministry and teaching means that we have no accurate way of making empirical decisions about what is and isn’t authentic Jesus tradition”

Now that we have settled any issues brought about the authenticity of the Gospel of Thomas, let us get into the text:
