Genesis 1:1-2: "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God SAID ..." This is from the Tawrat, part of our Scripture that Muslims say they believe. This shows God's WORD in the beginning. ("Be!")

From the Injil: John 1:1,2:" In the beginning was the WORD, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning."
On to John 1: 14: "The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and Truth."

In the Qur'an, Isa (Jesus) is referred to as "the Word." Sura 3:45

So you can see that Jesus is the Word from both your and our Scripture and that He was in the beginning when the world was created with the Creator and with the Spirit. His physical form here on earth was through Mary, but HE was before the world was created, along with the Paraclete--the Holy ghost, or Spirit!

GOD CANNOT BE LIMITED TO PLACE AND TIME !

When Jesus was born of Mary, it was God coming to us, just as He came to Adam and Eve in the Garden!

Just as He rescued Noah and his family from the flood!

And God provided a lamb when Abraham was about to sacrifice his son!

So when Jesus came in form of a man, although divine, sinless, He sacrificed Himself on the cross just as all those lambs had been sacrificed by the Jews, and just as you do on Eid. But Jesus died and rose again as the final sacrifice!

God provided the way out !

He calls us to be His children an heirs, as a just judge who looks at his child in court and decrees the fine, but then he leaves the bench and pays the fine for the child so that the child escapes the penalty. It is the ULTIMATE LOVE OF GOD that saves us!
