A study of commentators' interpretive views on verses related to the Jesus' speech in infancy
Mohammad Hadi Mansouri, Hamideh Shorgashti
Abstract:   (1176 Views)
The Holy Quran in several verses has dealt with the different aspects of the life of Jesus (PBUH) particularly when he spoke in the cradle. This case study that how an infant in the cradle could speak is the main point of discrepancy among commentators. It is well known that the Jesus (PBUH) talked [to the people] during his infancy, and it has always been considered as a divine miracle that removed the charge of impurity from the Blessed Virgin Mary and it also proved his divine prophecy. According to some scholars, however, the Holy Quran does not specifically claim that Jesus spoke in infancy. To them the event took place when Jesus was around two or three years old. They hold that although a child can normally speak at this age; but the wise words of Jesus (PBUH), in response to the suspicion of his mother's impurity at an age of which the child has no understanding, made the audience consider it a divine sign. The present article, while going deep to the origin of the problem, has criticized this notion maintaining that such an interpretation is unacceptable due to its incompatibility with the rational reason, the wisdom of speech in the cradle, and its inconsistency with the context of verses and the data provided by [Ahadith] narrations.
