Most Non-Born-Again Christians Still Believe in Physical Resurrection, Study Finds

Despite fears that the Jesus tomb would threaten the foundations of Christian faith, a study found that belief in the resurrection of Jesus as a physical phenomenon remains strong.

The study, conducted by the Center for Missional Research of the North American Mission Board, found that 75% of Americans who described themselves as being non-born-again Christians still believe in Jesus’ physical resurrection as described in the Bible.

In addition, 59% of the study’s participants who described themselves as rarely attending church stated that they believed in the resurrection and 39% of individuals who never attended also believed.

Nearly 100% of born-again Christians surveyed stated they believe in the resurrection. The Jesus tomb documentary did not affect these individuals’ beliefs; 57% of these individuals who had either watched the Lost Tomb of Jesus documentary or read the book of the same title, or who had heard of either, stated that it had not affected their views on the resurrection of Jesus.

In fact, the study suggests that the Lost Tomb of Jesus may have helped to strengthen the participants’ religious views. Thirty-five percent said that they are more likely to attend Easter service this year after hearing about or watching the documentary or after reading the book, while 23% of self-described non-born-again Christians said the same. Only 7% said that the documentary or book decreased the likelihood of their attending Easter service this coming weekend.

The survey was based on the opinions of 1204 American adults who had been randomly selected and who had been interviewed via telephone.
