Ok -- but then straight after making the clay birds fly, the infancy gospel of Thomas has the boy Jesus killing a kid who breaks his toy dam and lets the water run out, by cursing him and making his body wither away, and then causes another child who bumps him to drop dead. He strikes neighbours blind and also has his father running to the school in a panic fearing Jesus has killed one of his teachers for daring to try to teach him.The so-called Infancy Gospel of Thomas is a biographical gospel about the childhood of Jesus, believed to date at the latest to the second century. Interestingly, the stories cover how Jesus matures and learns to use his powers for good and how those around him first respond in fear and later with admiration. One of the episodes involves Jesus making clay birds, which he then proceeds to bring to life, an act also attributed to Jesus in Quran 5:110, and in a medieval work known as Toledot Yeshu.
How do you line this up with the sinless, virgin born Jesus?
