Knesset members introduce legislation to outlaw preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Israel – violators would face PRISON time
t could soon become a crime in the state of Israel to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to anyone who is not already a believer.
Two members of the United Torah Judaism Knesset, Moshe Gafni and Yaakov Asher, co-introduced legislation that would make it illegal to tell others about Yeshua Hamashiach, the penalty for such being one year in jail if the person is an adult and two years in jail if the person is a minor.
In years past, such a bill would have been easily rejected – and it has been, seeing as how Gafni, who is nearly 70 years old, has been introducing a version of this bill every year with no success since 1988 when he was first elected to the Knesset. This year, however, could be different.
Because the Israeli legislature is now controlled by Orthodox and ultra-Orthodox Jews, there is a greater chance than ever before, since Israel once again became a nation in 1948, for such a bill to actually get passed.

Writing for All Israel News, editor Joel C. Rosenberg explains in further detail how the 120-seat Knesset now has a majority who are likely in favor of prohibiting evangelical Christianity in the modern state of Israel.
“These members are far more aggressive in this legislative session than ever before in pushing for legislations to be passed that advance their theological worldview,” Rosenberg says.
If Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hopes to remain as such while advancing his other agenda items, including stopping the Iranian regime from building nuclear weapons, making peace with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, strengthening and expanding the Israeli economy as the United States economy slows, and passing sweeping judicial reforms, then he will likely have to sign off on the majority’s demands.
