A survey commissioned by the BBC to mark Palm Sunday has revealed some interesting diversion in beliefs about Christ’s resurrection amongst the British public.

Just under a quarter of Christians surveyed said they did not believe that Jesus’ resurrection happened at all, which begs the questions of why they are or remain Christians.

Another 40% of British Christians say whilst they believed the resurrection occurred, they do not believe it happened exactly as described in the Bible. Only 31% of Christians believe word for word the resurrection account as laid down in the bible.

Conversely, 9% of non religious people surveyed said they believed in the resurrection story, with 1% saying they believed it occurred exactly as described in the bible. Which begs the opposite question to what we posed earlier.

In the general population, 50% of all British people said they did not believe in the resurrection.

On the broader question of life after death, the public is split. 46% say they believe in a form of life after death (heaven, hell or reincarnation), whilst 46% said they do not. A fifth of non-religious Brits say they believe in a form of life after death.

The survey was carried out by ComRes, for the BBC. Read more about it here.
