21st century Jesus 'would be born in Yorkshire Dales shed'
6:41pm Wednesday 18th December 2013 in News
IF Jesus was born next week, it would be in a garden shed in the Yorkshire Dales, a survey has found.
More than 30 per cent of 1,000 people from across Britain who took part in The Bible Society poll said the North Yorkshire national park would be the best place for a modern day Nativity.
London was rated the second most popular birthplace, with the study also reavealing Professor Brian Cox and Sir Trevor Macdonald would be the most popular wise men, ahead of Chancellor George Osborne and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.
One third of those polled thought Jesus would be born in a garden shed in the 21st century, while 17 per cent decided a Travelodge would be more fitting.
A Bible Society spokesman said: "By encouraging people to think about the Nativity in terms of today's ordinary experiences, we hope that they'll revisit one of the world's best known stories with a fresh perspective."
