    I have studied this question since 1969. It came about as to whether Christ died on a Friday or a Wednesday.

    I have a firm Biblical believe that it occurred on April 6, 30 AD.

    Mark's gospel account the day before Christ' died, ". . . And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?. . . ." -- Mark 14:12.
    That identifies the date to be on the Jewish calendar to be the 14th (Exodus 12:6; Exodus 12:18).

    Jewish days begin at sundown being the evening (Mark 1:32).

    Jesus meets with His disciples that following evening (the 15th), ". . . And in the evening he cometh with the twelve. . . ." -- Mark 14:17.

    That 15th of the Passover is an holy convocation where no work except prepare food (Exodus 12:16). The body of Jesus could not be taken down on that day.

    The evening following was the being of Preparation day before the weekly Sabbath. ". . . And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath, . . ." -- Mark 15:42.

    That identifies the day of the week for the crucifixion to be our Thursday evening. Not Wednesday. Not Friday.

    Now the question is what year was that?

    John's gospel account only records 3 Passovers. (John 2:13 & John 2:23 1st, John 6:4, 2nd, John 11:55-56 the Passover of the crucifixion.)

    Luke's account states ". . . Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, . . ." -- Luke 3:1. Which identifies the year to be 28 AD. John's three Passovers would make it 30 AD.

    Hmm. I wrote "believe" for "belief." That is annoying.
