Quote:
{3:51} Indeed, God is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is the straight path."

The Arabic uses the indefinite, so I'd translate the last sentence to, "That is a straight path."

That's an easy one.

Actually, it should be "This is a straight path."

{3:48} "And He teaches him the Book and wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel,"

{3:49} "And [makes him] a messenger to the Children of Israel, [who will say to them], 'I have indeed come to you with a sign from your Lord: that I create for you from clay like the figure of a bird, then I blow into it then it is a bird by permission of God. And I restore the sightless and the leper, and I revive the dead by permission of God. And I inform you of what you eat and what you spare in your homes. Verily, in that is a sign for you, if you have been believers.'"

{3:50} [The angel continuing to quote Jesus,] "'And [I have come] confirming of what is between my hands (ahead) of me of the Torah and to allow to you some of what was forbidden to you. And I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, so watch out for God and obey me.'"

{3:51} "'Verily, God is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. This is a straight path.'"
