I betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver because I got bribed by the soldiers. After my betrayal of Jesus which led to Jesus’ persecution, I committed suicide because I was considered a traitor. I was then replaced for Matthias. I was very greedy at the time and I really wanted to become rich, but when I was watching Jesus slowly die on the cross, I felt very bad because this was mostly my fault and I knew that the silver wasn’t worth it.
When I, his betrayer, saw that Jesus was being tortured todeath, I repented and bought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and the elders.
I said to the chief priests and elders I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.
What is that to us? See it yourself.
Throwing down the pieces of silver in the temple, I departed, and I went to hang myself.
