{5:17} They have certainly disbelieved - who said that God is the Messiah, son of Mary. Say, "Then who possesses with God any [influence] if He wanted to destroy the Messiah, son of Mary, and his mother and whomever in the earth altogether?" And to God belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them. He creates what He wills, and God is over everything Powerful.

{5:18} And said the Jews and the Christians, "We are the children of God and His beloved." Say, "Then why does He torment you for your sins?" Rather, you are humans from among those He has created. He forgives whom He wills, and He torments whom He wills. And to God belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them, and to Him is the destination.

{5:19} O People of the Book, there did come to you Our Messenger to clarify for you after a pause of messengers, lest you should say, "There has not came to us any herald nor warner." But there did come to you a herald and warner. And God is over everything Powerful.
