There are stories about the life of Jesus by different writers.The best known are the four Christian books called the Gospels.This is the day-reckoning of the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke.Jesus and the disciples ate the Passover meal on the Thursday preceding the crucifixion, at what we call the Last Supper. Hoehner, Chronological Aspects of the Life of Christ, Chapter IV: The Day of Christ's Crucifixion (Grand Rapids: Academie Books, 1977) ISBN 0-310-26211-9"(6).They form the beginning of the New Testament, a part of the Bible.
