Then why is it Woodrow, that some muslims use this very same stick to beat at christians today? Accusing Catholics of worshipping Mary. as I said it would appear the Quran is very much a work for a certain people for a certain time.

Of the ayats you post above I find interesting that without the words in parenthesis added by scholars the Quran's view Jesus is described much as christians see Him. makes me wonder sometimes how much the "scholars" over the centuries may have changed the interpretation of the Quran.

Just a thought to add... The trinity being mentioned only twice in the Quran makes it twice more than being mentioned in the Bible. Where it's not mentioned at all.

The notes in parenthesis are not in an actual Qur'an. Many probably most of the Translators to English are not Islamic scholars but are Linguistic scholars adept in Arabic and English.

Muslims are encouraged to read the original Arabic, without commentary or interpretations.

While some of the Surah are addressed to a specific people, the message contained is for all people.
