In the name of Allah the most Gracious the most Merciful

The answer to your question is as follows:

In the Holy Qur'an, Allah Almighty has clearly stated that the Jews plotted secretly and Allah Almighty also plotted and Allah Almighty is the best of plotters. The Jews wanted to kill Jesus and came to kill him. But they were deluded by resemblance and Jesus was lifted to the heaven alive. They killed that person instead of Jesus; the secret of which was later revealed to them. there is no deception and lies in it.

It is a common thing to take measures on the occasion of war and battle and it is also a requisite of human nature.

Here, in the light of this principle, Allah Almighty has revealed the weakness of human beings and the supremacy of divine power. For your satisfaction, read the Quranic commentary books.

And Allah knows best
