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.”

The mission of Jesus is announced in two ways:

  1. he was to be a Sign to men; his wonderful birth and
    wonderful life were to turn an ungodly world back to
    Allah; and
  2. his mission was similar to that of all prophets of
    Allah.
    But the point here is that the Israelites, to whom Jesus
    was sent, were a hardened race, for whom the message
    of Jesus was truly a gospel of Mercy
