The third reason that the Last Supper could not have been Passover is that if it was, then the night and early morning hours following the Last Supper would have been the high Sabbath of the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread on which no work could be done by Jews.
Matthew 26:47–27:56; Mark 14:43–15:47; Luke 22:47–53; and John 18:1-19:42 all relate that on a High Sabbath when Jews could do no work, Y'shua was:
- Tried before
- Caiaphas (the High Priest) and the Sanhedrin
- Placed in the Tomb
