The Death of Judas Iscariot between Matthew’s version and the version of the apostles.

Matthew’s Version

When it was noon, all the chief priests and the elders of the nation gathered and decided to kill Jesus.

(2) They bound Him and took Him and handed Him over to Pilate, the governor of the land.

(3) When Judas, who betrayed Him, saw that Jesus had been condemned to death, he was sorry.

Then he returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,

(4) and said: “I have sinned by giving up innocent blood.” But they answered: “What have we got to do with it? That’s your own business!”

(5) So, he threw the silver into the temple and left there and hanged himself.

(6) The chief priests took the silver and said, “It is not permissible to put this money in the offering chest, for it is blood money.”

(7) After negotiating, they bought with the money a land called the potter’s land to be used as a burial place for foreigners.

(8) That is why the price of the land is called the Land of Blood.

(10) and they gave the money for the potter’s land, just as the Lord had commanded me.” (Matthew 27:1-10)

The Death of Judas Iscariot per the version of the what supposed to be apostles

(15) In those days Peter stood in the midst of the assembled brethren, about a hundred and twenty, and said,

(16) Brothers and sisters, the Scriptures that the Holy Spirit spoke through David about Judas, the leader of those who arrested Jesus, must be fulfilled.

(17) In the past he was among our numbers and took part in this ministry.”

(18) – This Judas had bought a piece of land with his crime, then fell on his face, and split open so that all the contents of his stomach spilled out.

(19) This was known by all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so they called the land in their own language “Hakal-Dama”, meaning Land of Blood–.

(20) For it is written in the book of Psalms: Let it be desolate in it, and let there be no occupant in it: and: Let another man take his office (Acts 1:15-20

It appears that the two versions of the verses have very sharp contradictions. some of the contradictions that we can learn from the two versions of the verses above are:

  1. DID JUDAS THROW HIS MONEY IN THE TEMPLE OR BUY THE LAND? = In Matthew’s version, Judas regretted giving up Jesus for the death penalty.

So, he wanted to return the 30 pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, so Judas did not buy the land with his betrayal money, he threw the money away and hanged himself, never buying land until his spirit drifted away.

(3) When Judas, who betrayed Him, saw that Jesus had been condemned to death, he was sorry. Then he returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders

(4) and said: “I have sinned by giving up innocent blood.” But they answered: “What have we got to do with it? That’s your own business!”

(5) So, he also threw the silver coin into the temple, then went from there and hanged himself (27:3-5)

But the version of the Acts of the Apostles, Judas did not return the money to the chief priests and elders -old, even Judas with his betrayal money he bought land. Judas died after he bought the land (18) – This Judas had bought a piece of land with his wickedness, then fell on his face, and his stomach was split open so that all the contents of his stomach spilled out. (Acts 1:18))

  • WHO Bought THE LAND OF BLOOD?

THE HEAD PRIESTS AND THE ELDERLY OR JUDAS? = In Matthew’s version, the chief priests and elders who bought the land of blood/Hakal Dama were not Judas. Judas immediately regretted, threw the money into the temple, then went to hang himself. (3) When Judas, who betrayed him, saw that Jesus had been condemned to death, he regretted. So, he returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,

(4) and said, “I has sinned by hanging the blood of innocent people.” They answered, “What have we to do with that? That’s your own business!”(5) So he threw silver coins into the temple and left.

(6) The priest the chief priest took the silver coin and said: “It is not permissible to put this money in the offering chest, because it is blood money.”

(7) After negotiating with the money, he bought land called the potter’s land to be used as a burial place for foreigners.

(8) That is why the land is to this day called the Land of Blood (Matthew 27:3-8)) …… in the version of the Acts of the Apostles, it was not the chief priests and elders who bought the land with Judas’ betrayal money, but Judas himself bought the land with betrayal money yes himself, then he died falling on his stomach with a split stomach (18) —

This Judas had bought a piece of land with his crime, then fell on his face, and his stomach was split open so that all the contents of his stomach were spilled out. (19) This is known to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that the land they call in their own language “Hakal-Dama”, meaning the Land of Blood-(Acts 1:18-19) ).

The contradiction is clear, in the story of the Apostles, it was Judas who bought the land with his betrayal money. In Matthew’s version, the chief priests and elders of the Jews bought the land, the land called Hakal Dama.

HOW DOES JUDAS DIE? DEATH HANGING HIMSELF OR DEATH FALLING UP UNTIL HIS STOMACH IS RENT OUT, UNTIL HIS STOMACH CONTENTS SPILL OUT? = In Matthew’s version, Judas died by hanging himself ((5)

So he threw the silver coin into the temple, then left and hanged himself (Matthew 27:5)) …….different from Judas’ death according to the story the Apostles, Judas died not by hanging, but Judas died from falling face down, and somehow, his stomach split open until all the contents of the stomach were spilled. (18) –

This Judas had bought a piece of land with his crime, then fell on his face, and his whole stomach was spilled out. (19) This was known to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the land they called in their own language “Hakal-Dama”, meaning Land of Blood (Acts 1:18-19)).

So, there is a different version of the way Judas died between the Acts of the Apostles and Matthew. Christians apologise, because Judas hung himself either on a fragile tree branch, then the trunk was broken until Judas fell until his stomach hit something until his stomach was split open until all the contents of his stomach came out. But that apology was weak.

If Judas fell on something sharp or rocks, it was impossible for all of his stomach contents to come out. maximum he was only threatened, tore his stomach slightly, and died. Unless Judas hangs himself on the Petronas tower, it could be that the fall makes his stomach split open, so that all the contents of his stomach come out. Christians, according to tradition, Judas hung himself on the edge of a steep cliff, above the Valley of Hinnom.

But the rope that hung him finally broke and Judas fell down as Luke describes. traditional stories are stories that are not in the New Testament, which cannot be confirmed and complain about the truth of the story

Well, haven’t you seen a very sharp contradiction in the two versions of the death of Judas above? So, which of the 2 versions of the story is lying? The gospel that is claimed to have come from the Apostle Matthew who lied or Luke the author of the Acts of the Apostles who lied?

The Apostle Matthew who claims to be an eyewitness says that Judas took the land of blood from the proceeds of his crime, he threw the money into the holy bait, Luke stated that Judas bought the land of blood with the proceeds of his crime. Matthew claimed to be an eyewitness, Luke claimed his writings from eyewitnesses and ministers of the word. Both claim it to be empty when faced with this sharp contradiction.

This shows, the New Testament writers wrote all the stories they liked according to their stories and attributed it to Jesus and the disciples. From this discussion, both the book of Matthew and the Acts of the Apostles, it is difficult to believe that this is a 100% true document about Jesus. s and his Apostles. Actually, among them there is a group who twist their tongues reading the Book, so that you think that what they read is part of the Book, even though it is not from the Book, and they say:

“He (what he reads comes) from the side of Allah”, even though he is not from Allah. side of God. They tell lies against Allah while they know. (Ali-`Imran: 78) So woe to those who wrote the Bible with their own hands and said, “This is from Allah”, (with the intention of) getting a little profit by doing that. So, a great accident for them, the result of what their own hands wrote, and a great accident for them, because of what they do. (Al-Baqarah: 79)
