Judas betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver


Judas owned that commie trying to break up the glorius Roman Empire by empowering the poor.

you would betray Jesus too, wouldn't you?


Today yes, but not if I were a Roman 2000 years ago.


What's that in dollars?


'There are 31.1035 grams per troy ounce. At spot valuation of $28/ozt in 2021, 30 "pieces of silver" would be worth approximately $91 to $441 in present-day value (USD) depending on which coin was used.'


Oh, that's not much. I forget, are historians confident that Judas existed? Well, if you follow the theological telling of events then someone had to get Jesus killed for the whole martyrdom savior of humanity thing so maybe it was all a grand plan set in motion beforehand.
That's not much money, though. Does it account for inflation?


was getting crucified part of your plan?


yeah, that's not much, and that's exactly why i find it fascinating


Judas was the only one who understood the message of Jesus and all of the other 11 did not, they thus will all die bodily and spiritually while Judas will only die bodily. Judas only did what Jesus asked him to do.


The Roman denarius was 3.9 grams at the time and silver is worth $1.06 Australian dollars now so that is $124.02 but the coins were slightly debased(about 98% silver at the time according to Wikipedia) however Roman currency was also worth more than solely it's metallic value but the degree to which that was true changes over time but usually from 1.6 to 2.85 times the metallic value(again from Wikipedia) so $194 to $356 AUD or 120 to 218 Euros.

But using direct comparisons is problematic for various reasons. For a better comparison, a Roman legionary would make 225 Denarii a year so you are looking at over a months pay for a Legionary.


Judas did nothing wrong


Depending on the way you look at it, Judas was just acting out god's will by selling out Jesus. Since how else would he have ended up on the cross.


I get that Jesus dying for our sins needed to happen to shoulder the sins of humanity but that says nothing for our sins after that
we need Jesus 2 to come around so we can kill him again


If I play as Judas will I get a million bucks?
