c) The Young Creator
We read in the Quran - not in the Gospel - that Jesus, as a boy, formed from clay the likeness of a bird, and breathed into it; then it became a living bird, flying in the sky:
“Truly, I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, in that I will create for you out of clay a likeness of a bird; then I will breathe into it, and it will be a bird with the permission of Allah. I will also heal the blind and the leper, and bring to life the dead with the permission of Allah.” (Sura Al Imran 3:49)
أَنِّي قَد جِئْتُكُم بِآيَة مِن رَبِّكُم أَنِّي أَخْلُق لَكُم مِن الطِّين كَهَيْئَة الطَّيْر فَأَنْفُخ فِيه فَيَكُون طَيْرا بِإِذْن اللَّه وَأُبْرِئ الأَكْمَه وَالأَبْرَص وَأُحْيِي الْمَوْتَى بِإِذْن اللَّه (سُورَة آل عِمْرَان ٣ : ٤٩)
In this verse, we find the unique phrase, “I will create for you“”, which indicates that Christ is the able Creator. A human can neither create something out of nothing, nor breathe life into something that was lifeless.
The Quran testifies to the ability of Christ to give life by His quickening breath. He breathed into a clay bird and it became a living bird, exactly as God breathed into Adam earlier. This means that Christ has a life-giving Spirit in Himself; He is capable of breathing life into lifeless clay.
