The Quran’s Mistaken Claim Against the Jews

Gottlieb — Jews Praying in the Synagogue on Yom Kippur (1878)

Muslims claim the Quran is the literal word of God. It uses the most precise, accurate language possible. Yet it describes the Jews as calling Uzair the son of Allah. Is this a mistake? Is this the best way that Allah could have conveyed this? Did the author of the Quran not know future generations would be confused by this verse?

Quran 9:30
