http://www.coinsofourpast.com/coinpages/biblepage.html I ordered some coins that I gave to my brothers and sisters at church today. It just so happened that my testimony and gift fit right in with the sermon. The Shekel of Tyre is the most likely currency that was paid to Judas when he betrayed Christ. I thought it was rather fitting that my order arrived when it did. Every man has his earthly price...but beware of the ultimate price to be paid.
Matthew 27 : 1 When the morning was come , all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death : 2 And when they had bound him, they led him away , and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor. 3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned , repented himself , and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4 Saying , I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said , What is that to us? see thou to that. 5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed , and went and hanged himself . 6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said , It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood. 7 And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in. 8 Wherefore that field was called , The field of blood, unto this day.
