the family of Imram. 200 verses include stories of Imram, father of Mary and of Zachariya and John. I use the English spellings. Mary will bear a Word from Him, Christ Jesus. God creates him and Mary will give birth. He will make a clay bird miraculously come to life. He and his disciples are Muslims. People of the Book are called to worship none but God, as did Abraham who was not a Jew. Again there is reference to the covenant of the prophet but no institution or content. Muslims believe in what was revealed to the Patriarchs, Ishmael and the Tribes and in books given to Moses, Jesus and the prophets. I do not comment the other ramblings, only on that which refers to matters biblical.
