Hints to the quality of the creation of Jesus is found both in the Quran and the new Testament. Also in both, the conception of Jesus in Mary’s womb through the Holy Spirit is considered possible, but the manner of its happening is rather different. In the New Testament the final explanation is the coming of the Holy Spirit and the over shadowing of Mary by the power of the Most High, and this way God is considered as the father of Jesus Christ. In the Gospel of John, Jesus is regarded as the word of God who became flesh. In the Quran more explanations are found. First, the nature of Jesus, like Adam and other human beings is considered to be from earth and genuinely human. Second, his seed, like the seeds of other human beings is called the word, which is one of God’s creations. In this paper, the stages of the creation of man, including Jesus, is studied from the point of view of the Quran. Furthermore, Jesus is likened to Adam, as he was born without a father, except that he was conceived in Mary’s womb through the breath of the Holy Spirit. The same concept is also find in the New Testament. Therefore, these two concepts, together with the points of view of the commentators, and the believes of the faithful Christians and Muslims considering the human or divine nature of Christ is further studied in this paper.
