HOPELESSNESS SEIZES JUDAS

HOPELESSNESS SEIZES JUDAS

March 29, 2020

Matthew 27:1-10

Jesus Delivered to Pilate

1 When morning came, all the chief priests and the elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death. 
2 And they bound him and led him away and delivered him over to Pilate the governor.

Judas Hangs Himself

3 Then when Judas, his betrayer, saw that Jesus was condemned, he changed his mind and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and the elders, 
4 saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.” They said, “What is that to us? See to it yourself.” 
5 And throwing down the pieces of silver into the temple, he departed, and he went and hanged himself. 
6 But the chief priests, taking the pieces of silver, said, “It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, since it is blood money.” 
7 So they took counsel and bought with them the potter’s field as a burial place for strangers. 
8 Therefore that field has been called the Field of Blood to this day. 
9 Then was fulfilled what had been spoken by the prophet Jeremiah, saying, “And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him on whom a price had been set by some of the sons of Israel, 
10 and they gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord directed me.”
