The Last Supper was on Wednesday?
A scientist from Cambridge claims that The Last Supper is held on a Maundy Thursday, but the day before. Professor Colin Humphreys believes that Jesus was at the Last Supper the day before, on a Maundy Wednesday. In his new book ‘The Mystery Of The Last Supper’ combining information from the Bible, history and astronomy he concluded that the current belief of Christians was wrong.
Scientists have long years of struggling diversity of data on this very important event for all Christians. For example, the evangelists Matthew, Mark and Luke claimed that the last dinner coincided with the beginning of the Jewish holiday of Passover, while John claims that it all happened after the Passover.
But Humphrey says that Jesus, along with Matthew, Mark and Luke used a different calendar from Ivan. For Telegraph Humphrey said that whatever you think of the Bible, the fact is that Jews would never replace the Passover dinner with a normal dinner and it is very difficult to understand the contradictory state of evangelists. Many believe that from a similar situation, we can not believe the Bible, but science can help us in this.
According to his theory, Jesus is conducted according to the old Jewish calendar, not the lunar which at that time was already widespread and is used today. This feature of the Passover and the Last Supper have taken place on Wednesday, so this explanation illuminates the fact that such events could be rolled out between Supper and the Crucifixion. In fact, Jesus’ arrest, investigation and trial have not occurred in one night but in the long run. Counting, Humphrey came to the conclusion that the crucifixion of Jesus on the cross took place on 3. March, and his resurrection on 5. March.
