Nisan 15?

Andrew Gabriel Roth has an interesting theory that Christ died on Nisan, the first day of unleavened bread.  The challenge is: did the disciples eat the Passover?  Passover lambs are eaten at the end of Nisan 14 and into the first part of Nisan 15.  Andrew mentions that the Passover lambs were killed relatively painlessly with a slit to the throat.  The following seven day had messier Bull offerings.  This author doesn’t subscribe to this view, but it’s interesting in light of the last supper.  It may be correct.
