What does ‘The Book’ mean in Ayah 5:110 of the Holy Quran?


What does “The Book” mean in the following Ayah?:

“…and when I taught you the Book and wisdom and the Taurat and the Injeel…” [5:110]


In Ayah 5:110, ‘The book’ means the writing of the Taurat and the Injeel.

In the verse Allah (swt) mentions ‘The book’ first, and then explains what the book means i.e. it means the taurat and the Injeel. This is according to the following Tafseer book: (Majmaul-Bayaan fi Tafseer al-Quran).
