Why is Jesus called the son of Mary so many times?

4:171 O People of the Book, do not commit excess in your religion and do not say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a spirit from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, "Three"; desist - it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Glory be to Him, that He (should) have a son for Him. To Him whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs.

(There is a distinction in the Bible betweenJesus, the son of Mary / the Messiah” and “Jesus, son of the father (referring to God). The Aramaic name “Barabbas” literally means “son of the father” (referring to God); and ancient manuscripts of Matthew 27:16-17 have the name “Jesus Barabbas”, not just “Barabbas”; (see the translations that are more faithful to the oldest sources: “New International Version” or “contemporary English Version”, or “Good News Translation”, or “Net Bible”); according to the Bible, Pilate, the governor of Judea, asked the crowd which prisoner was to be released “Jesus son of the father” (aka Jesus Barabbas), or “Jesus who is called the Messiah” (Matthew 27:17). So, the Gospel explicitly says that there were two characters bearing the same name (Jesus). It seems that Christians mixed stories of two different characters; Jesus Barabbas blasphemed by bearing such a name “the son of father (referring to God)”, while Jesus the Messiah never said that he was the son of God, because the words “Barabbas / son of the fatherand “Messiah / son of Mary” are used to distinguish one Jesus from the other)(Allah knows best)

39:23 Allah has revealed the best statement - a Book, resembling each other oft-repeated. The skins of those who fear their Lord shiver from it, then their skins and their hearts relax at the remembrance of Allah. That is the guidance of Allah, He guides with it whom He wills. And whoever Allah lets go astray, then there is no guide for him.

5:48 And We have revealed to you the Book in truth, confirming the Book that came before it and as a guardian over it. So judge between them by what Allah has revealed and do not follow their vain desires when the truth has come to you. For each of you We have made a law and a clear way. And if Allah had willed, He would have made you one community [and] but to test you in what He has given you; so race to good. To Allah you will all return, then He will inform you concerning that over which you used to differ.
