Would Jesus descend on the shoulders of angels?

Those who expect Jesus to physically descend from the heavens while resting on shoulders of angels need to ponder on this verse. Such facetious expectations are the hallmark of opponents of prophets, who demand to see angles descending—in this case Noah's:

And the chiefs of his people, who disbelieved, said, 'He (Noah) is only a man like yourselves; he seeks to make himself superior to you. And if Allah so willed, He could have surely sent down angels. We have never heard of such a thing among our forefathers. (23:25)
