What Day was Christ Crucified On?

On what day of the week was Christ crucified?

The answer greatly affects how one understands the events of Christ’s whole Last Week (which events form a significant share of the Gospels).

The options are Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.  Wednesday is a bit fringe, but surprisingly popular.  The Thursday view has risen greatly in popularity in the last several decades amongst evangelical scholars.

This webpage provides in-depth resources defending the majority view of Church History, that Christ ate the Passover on Thursday, the 14th of Nisan, and was crucified on Friday the 15th of Nisan.

Christ was Crucified on Friday, the 15th of Nisan
