Last Supper 'was on a Wednesday'

Christians have long marked Jesus Christ's Last Supper on Maundy Thursday but new research by a leading academic suggests they have got the wrong date.

Professor Colin Humphreys, a scientist at the University of Cambridge, has concluded that the final meal took place on the Wednesday before the crucifixion, a day earlier than previously accepted. He believes his findings, which are likely to cause ripples among millions of Christians, could present a case for finally introducing a fixed date for Easter.

They also present a solution to apparent contradictions in the Gospels.
