Speaking Baby Jesus
The story in sura 19:29-30 where the baby Jesus speaks from the cradle is from the apocryphal Christian legend, The First Gospel of the Infancy of Jesus Christ. I’ll just post the “speaking” part.
“Then she, Mary, pointed to him. They said: How can we talk to one who is in the cradle, a young boy? He spake: Lo! I am the slave of Allah. He hath given me the Scripture and hath appointed me a Prophet…”
Now if you compare that to The First Gospel of the Infancy of Jesus Christ:
“…Jesus spake even when he was in the cradle, and said to his mother: “Mary, I am Jesus the Son of God. That word which thou didst bring forth according to the declaration of the angel…”
Jesus Turning Clay into Birds
The story in the Koran in which Jesus took clay and turned it into living birds is found in sura 3:49 is undoubtedly from Thomas’ Gospel of the Infancy of Jesus Christ.
“And will make him a messenger unto the Children of Israel, (saying): Lo! I come unto you with a sign from your Lord. Lo! I fashion for you out of clay the likeness of a bird, and I breathe into it and it is a bird, by Allah’s leave.”
Now, compare that to Thomas’ Gospel of the Infancy of Jesus Christ:
…"Then he took from the bank of the stream some soft clay, and formed out of it twelve sparrows…Then Jesus clapping together the palms of his hands, called to the sparrows, and said to them: “Go fly away.”
These are just a few, but there are many other fairy tales, heretical writings and fables of the old.
