Blogging the Qur'an: Sura 3, "The Family of Imran," verses 33-63

Robert Spencer has the installment here. Today's topic: a little Islamic spin on Mary and Jesus.

I find it fascinating that the Koran acknowledges that Jesus performed miracles, even raising the dead. Of course, since the Koran says that Jesus was not divine, it alleges the power did not originate from Jesus, just as the Bible says that Moses' miracles did not originate from Moses' own power. But this thought rolls around in my mind: if Mohammed was the last and greatest prophet, would he not have performed greater miracles than Jesus did? Does the Koran record any Mohammedan miracles at all?
