As with many biblical episodes, some buy into it and some don’t. I don’t think one can generalize.
It is one of the many episodes that cast serious doubt upon the historical authenticity of the gospels, though. Lack of corroboration. One would think those meticulous record-keeping Romans would have made at least a small note somewhere if large numbers of Jewish zombies showed up to party.
