Translation

He was no more than a servant: We granted Our favour to him, and We made him an example to the Children of Israel.

Tafsir

He, Jesus, is only a servant [of Ours] on whom We bestowed favour, through prophethood, and We made him, by his [coming into] being without a father, an exemplar for the Israelites, that is to say, like an example because of the wondrousness of his case, one from which one is able to infer God's power, exalted be He, to do whatever He will.
