There are persuasive arguments for the crucifixion not being on a Friday.  I guess the Friday hypothesis is based on the reference to it being before a Sabbath, and not knowing some of the details of those arguments.

But that would imply that the gospel writers were numerically challenged—unable to recognize that Friday night and Saturday night are only two nights.  Or liars who were stupid enough to think that nobody would notice this. Of course, I don’t think either of those implications are true, which is why I am totally puzzled that the Good Friday hypothesis is consistently treated as truth by almost everyone.  (Including people who are clearly not stupid.)

So why is that hypothesis/tradition so prevalent?
