The Quran says that they say that they killed the Messiah, but they killed him not. It says that THEY didn't kill him, nor did THEY crucifie him. But it was made so to appear to them. This to me is very clear that God means that Jesus could have died, but it's a responce to the claim that they killed the Messiah, which is a disrespectful statement trying to disprove that he is not the Messiah. I think this verse is trying to say that they didn't kill him, but he still died. He died because it was God's plan, not because they overpowered him. This is compatible with the gospels as we can see that Jesus told Pilate that the only reason that he has the power tohang the Messiah on the cross is because God has willed it. He says that non of this is by their power but God's plan. We can also see that Jesus dies early and he says; Father, into your hands I comend my spirit. The gospel picture of his death is exactly what I think the Quran says. He was crucified and "killed" by God, not by the people. Thoughts? Are there any scholars that holds/held this view?
