'People of the Book' Vs 'Those Who Were Given The Scripture'

In the name of GOD, Most Gracious, Most Merciful!

 

The phrase "People of the Book" refers to the receivers of the Torah and the Injeel. To me, this term does not include the receivers of the Quran. The confirmation of this meaning is found in the following verse:

 

Say, "O People of the Book, you have nothing to stand on until you uphold the Torah, and the Injeel, and what was brought down to you from your Lord." 5:68
