when morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the Jews got together and decided to kill jesus. they handcuff him and bring him and deliver him to Pilate, the guardian of the country.
Then Judas, who betrayed him, saw that Jesus was condemned, he repented. then he returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, and said: "I have sinned by betraying innocent blood." but they replied: "What our affairs with that? is your own business! "then he threw the pieces of silver into the temple and went away and hanged himself. the chief priests took the silver and said: "not allowed to put this money into the temple, because it's blood money." after they negotiate they bought with the money the land called the potter field to be a place of sanctuary strangers. that is why the land today called blood land. this fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet Jeremiah: "they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price set for an valuation according to prevailing among the Israelites, and they give money to the potter field, as the Lord appointed me.
