This concept is difficult for people to understand because it is unique to God alone. and you do understand it since u believe it? Just as the concept of eternity of time, or the infinity of space is beyond the grasp of the human mind to fully understand.
In this part i compared this to the quran to see if it has been changed. It has not.
Acts 2:22 of the Holy Bible considers Jesus as a man. It says, “Ye men of Israel, hear these words, jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs Read the Quran 3:59"The similitude of 'Isa before Allah is as that of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him "Be": and he was."
and 5:110 Then will Allah say: "O 'Isa the son of Maryam! recount My favour to thee and to thy mother. Behold! I strengthened thee with the holy spirit, so that thou didst speak to the people in childhood and in maturity. Behold! I taught thee the Book and Wisdom, the Law and the Gospel. And behold! thou makest out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, by My leave, and thou breathest into it, and it becometh a bird by My leave, and thou healest those born blind, and the lepers, by My leave. And behold! thou bringest forth the dead by My leave. And behold! I did restrain the Children of Israel from (violence to) thee when thou didst show them the Clear Signs, and the Unbelievers among them said: `This is nothing but evident magic.' 2:253 "Those Messengers We endowed with gifts, some above others: to one of them Allah spoke; others He raised to degrees (of honour); to 'Isa, the son of Maryam, We gave Clear (Signs), and strengthened him with the holy spirit. If Allah had so willed, succeeding generations would not have fought among each other, after Clear (Signs) had come to them but they (chose) to wrangle, some believing and others rejecting. If Allah had so willed, they would not have fought each other; but Allah fulfilleth His plan.
and 3:84 "We believe in Allah, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Ibrahim, Isma'il, Ishaq, Ya'qub, and the Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Musa, 'Isa, and the Prophets, from their Lord: we make no distinction between one and another among them, and to Allah do we bow our will (in Islam)."
which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourself also know.” This was not finished was it. The statement continues:
2:23 "This man, delivered up by the set plan and foreknowledge of God, you killed, using lawless men to crucify him. 4:157"That they said (in boast), "We killed Al-Masih 'Isa the son of Maryam, the Messenger of Allah"; but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not."
