Islam has no contradictions; its concepts can be explained to a Bedouin in a desert or a framer on top of Himalayas or Technology professor in MIT or Harvard universities, all in the same way:
Did he confess that Jesus of flesh and not a divine or Son of GOD? Yes, as great apostle sent by God to Children of Israel
Did he glorify Jesus and his mother Mary? Yes, Jesus was mentioned 25 times in Quran, and there is a Chapter called Marry (19) in the middle of Quran.
Did he speak about himself? He was mentioned by name only 4 times in Quran, nothing about his parents, cousins, sons, daughters, tribe, nothing at all..
Does he speak from God only and not from himself? Yes, as he hears he speak, nothing from himself as he confirmed by himself and in Quran..
- Did they defend their prophet? No…
- Did they protect him from Romans and other Jews? No…
- Did they try to save him from his capture? NO..
