Judas' Blood Money
After Jesus Christ was arrested The Fateful Night, Judas attempted to return the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and the elders who had given it to him for his betrayal of the Messiah, but they refused to accept it:
"When morning came, all the chief priests and the elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put Him to death; and they bound Him and led Him away and delivered Him to Pilate the governor."
As Matthew 27:9-10 plainly states, Judas' betrayal was prophesied. It was also written by King David in the Psalms:
"In those days Peter stood up among the brethren, the company of persons was in all about a hundred and twenty, and said, "Brethren, the Scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit spoke beforehand by the mouth of David, concerning Judas who was guide to those who arrested Jesus. For he was numbered among us, and was allotted his share in this ministry. Now this man bought a field with the reward of his wickedness; and falling headlong he burst open in the middle and all his bowels gushed out. And it became known to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that the field was called in their language Akeldama, that is, Field of Blood."
