Does the Koran believe Jesus is a prophet?

Say (O Muhammad): We believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto us and that which was revealed unto Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and that which was vouchsafed unto Moses and Jesus and the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered. Surah 3:84

The Koran finds no distinction between Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Issac, Jacob, the tribes, Moses, Jesus and the prophets, up to and including Muhammad. They hold the same title and office. When the people tried to make Jesus more than a prophet, the Koran said Jesus refused.

When (Jesus) the son of Mary is held up as an example, behold, thy people raise a clamour thereat (in ridicule)! And they say, “Are our gods best, or he?” This they set forth to thee, only by way of disputation: yea, they are a contentious people. He was no more than a servant: We granted Our favour to him, and We made him an example to the Children of Israel. Surah 43:57-59

Muhammad himself wrote in the Koran that no prophet should be worshipped.

It is not (possible) that a man, to whom is given the Book, and Wisdom, and the prophetic office, should say to people: “Be ye my worshippers rather than Allah’s”: on the contrary (He would say) “Be ye worshippers of Him Who is truly the Cherisher of all: For ye have taught the Book and ye have studied it earnestly.” Surah 3:79

Today Muhammad is worshipped or at least elevated higher than Moses and Jesus. Allah must be upset.
