وَدَّت طَّآئِفَةٌ مِّنْ أَهْلِ ٱلْكِتَابِ لَوْ يُضِلُّونَكُمْ وَمَا يُضِلُّونَ إِلاَّ أَنْفُسَهُمْ وَمَا يَشْعُرُونَ
-Âl ‘Imrân ( آل عمران )

Asbab Al-Nuzul

(A party of the People of the Scripture long to make you go astray…) [3:69]. This was revealed about Mu‘adh ibn Jabal and Hudhayfah [ibn al-Yaman] and ‘Ammar ibn Yasir when the Jews called them to embrace their religion. This story has already been mentioned in Surah the Cow.
