The Death of Judas
When Judas, the traitor, realised that Jesus had been condemned, he was filled with remorse and returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and the elders, saying, “l have sinned by betraying innocent blood.” They answered, “What does it matter to us? That is your concern.” So, throwing the money into, the Temple, he went away and hanged himself. The priests picked up the money and said, “This money cannot be put into the Temple treasury, for this is the price of blood.” So they met together and decided to buy the Potter’s Field with the money and make it a cemetery for foreigners. “This is why that place has been called Field of Blood to this day. And what the Prophet Jeremiah said was fulfilled: They took the thirty pieces of silver, the price the sons of Israel set on him, and they gave them for the Potter's Field, as the Lord revealed to me.
