(أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ) Utoo Al-Kitab and Variations in Ch 4

1 – 4:44
أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَى الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا نَصِيبًا مِنَ الْكِتَابِ يَشْتَرُونَ الضَّلالَةَ وَيُرِيدُونَ أَنْ تَضِلُّوا السَّبِيلَ
al-kitab here refers to the system of 4/43. For those who are given only a portion of this system, they are trading misguidance and hey intend that the believers should be diverted from the path.
2 – 4:47

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ آمِنُوا بِمَا نَـزَّلْنَا مُصَدِّقًا لِمَا مَعَكُمْ مِنْ قَبْلِ أَنْ نَطْمِسَ وُجُوهًا فَنَرُدَّهَا عَلَى أَدْبَارِهَا أَوْ نَلْعَنَهُمْ كَمَا لَعَنَّا أَصْحَابَ السَّبْتِ وَكَانَ أَمْرُ اللَّهِ مَفْعُولا

This is the only call to those who are given the kitab and it refers to the system created by the believers. They are told to believe in what is descended to them, which could be the system itself. This will confirm what is with them.

3 -4:51

أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَى الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا نَصِيبًا مِنَ الْكِتَابِ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالْجِبْتِ وَالطَّاغُوتِ وَيَقُولُونَ لِلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا هَؤُلاءِ أَهْدَى مِنَ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا سَبِيلاa portion of al-kitab here refers to the shirk warning of 4/48. For those who receive only a portion of it, they will believe in evil forces and transgressive authorities. They believe it’s better to reject than to be guided. This coheres with the idea that total perfect tawheed will eliminate taghoot.

4 -4:54

أَمْ يَحْسُدُونَ النَّاسَ عَلَى مَا آتَاهُمُ اللَّهُ مِنْ فَضْلِهِ فَقَدْ آتَيْنَا آلَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَآتَيْنَاهُمْ مُلْكًا عَظِيمًا
the book here refers to the system elucidated in the first part of the chapter, along with the wisdom to run it. This results in a well founded kingdom.
5 – 4:131

وَلِلَّهِ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الأَرْضِ وَلَقَدْ وَصَّيْنَا الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ وَإِيَّاكُمْ أَنِ اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَإِنْ تَكْفُرُوا فَإِنَّ لِلَّهِ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الأَرْضِ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَنِيًّا حَمِيدًا
this passsage is the one of the commands to those who believed in the system (4/59 onwards). This passage starts from 4/94 and this verse refers to that command which is to travel.
