Two members of the Israeli Knesset have introduced a bill that would ban people from spreading Christianity.
The bill would make it criminal to tell people about Jesus and would send people to prison for such an act.
Here’s more from Newsmax:
This is terrible news from Israel. I hope and pray that Christians can continue to freely share the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Israel. pic.twitter.com/MEXxM3RXqI

While it is just two members of the Knesset introducing this bill, they are reportedly part of Netanyahu’s own coalition. Which is why Christian leaders are calling on Prime Minister Netanyahu to stop the bill.
It would be horrendous that such bill would pass in the land where Christianity itself began, and would be reminiscent of the brutal days of the Roman Empire when Christianity was illegal.
