The Qur'ān narrates a number of episodes from the lives of Jesus and Mary. It acknowledges that Jesus was a prophet who worked miracles but it emphatically denies that he was the Son of God. It also seems to deny that he was crucified. Although the material about Jesus' adult life is somewhat sparse there is a wealth of detail concerning the events surrounding his nativity. The virgin birth is apparently affirmed and God is said to have chosen Mary above all the women of the worlds.
