According to Surah IV of the Qur'an, "the People of the Book" - in this context, the Jews, claim that they have put Jesus to death. Contrary to historical fact, they contend that they have crucified him. Why this implausible claim? Why this self-accusation? Why does the Qur'an polemicize so much against the Jews of Arabia and yet all the while appear to remain faithful to the biblical tradition?
