Judas receives his thirty pieces of silver

Judas Iscariot leads the enemies of Jesus to the Mount of Olives and the garden at its foot, Gethsemane, where He is praying some way apart from his disciples. It is there that he kisses Christ, thereby revealing His identity, and the chief priests, scribes and soldiers take Him into custody. After the betrayal comes the payment – thirty pieces of silver. No more contemptible sum of money exists in the annals of history. Not long afterwards, Judas is filled with remorse and returns the payment. He then hangs himself. The Temple authorities decide against putting the money in the treasury, and according to St Matthew buy the Potter’s Field which later becomes a burial ground for foreigners.
