Cambridge professor: Last Supper took place a day earlier than thought

The headline:  Last Supper was a day earlier, scientist claims

The summary:  The research of a professor at Cambridge University has concluded that the Last Supper took place one day earlier than what has commonly been believed due to a calendar mixup.

The reaction:  The professor claims that a difference in the calendars used at the time is the likely culprit and is using his findings to push for a fixed Easter date in the future.

It’s an interesting and very explainable finding although I don’t think he’ll ever have much luck in getting Easter tied to a fixed date.
