      Last Supper not on Maundy Thursday?

      Was Jesus Christ’s Last Supper on a Wednesday, and not on Holy
      Thursday as widely accepted by the Christians?

      Christians mark on the Last Supper on Maundy Thursday, or Holy
      Thursday, a day before Good Friday.

      A British materials scientist has claimed that The Last Supper of
      Jesus Christ was on the Wednesday, and not the Thursday, before his
      crucifixion on Good Friday. The Last Supper is the final meal that
      Jesus Christ shared with his 12 apostles in Jerusalem before his
      arrest, trial and crucifixion.

      Professor Sir Colin Humphreys, a scientist at the University of
      Cambridge, has made the claim in his book "The Mystery Of The Last
      Supper". Prof. Sir Colin along with Oxford astrophysicist Graeme
      Waddington, in 1983, identified the date of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion
      as the morning of Friday, April 3, 33 AD.

      The Biblical scholars have been trying to pinpoint the exact timing of
      Jesus Christ’s final meal with his apostles. In the New Testament,
      Matthew, Mark and Luke describe the Last Supper as a meal marking the
      start of the Jewish festival of Passover. However, John describes it
      as taking place before the Passover began.

      Another logical problem to the Holy Week model, is that if the Last
      Supper was on a Thursday, then for Jesus to have been executed on a
      Friday morning, a large number of events had to take place overnight
      like his arrest, interrogation, and separate trials before the Jewish
      court (the Sanhedrin), Pontius Pilate and Herod. Also, it was against
      Jewish law for the Sanhedrin to meet at night.
