Subject: 30 pcs. of silver for JUDAS ISCARIOT
[color=indigo]I am only wondering why the religious leaders had to pay Judas Iscariot 30 pieces of silver to identify Jesus Christ. Was not Jesus preaching in the synagogues and even went to the temple driving the people selling doves, sheep and oxen and overthrew the tables of the money changers? Have you also thought of this?[/color]

What I heard from my preachers before was this thing has to happen because it was prophesied in the Old Testament. Now I realized that is not yet the answer to the question. I am also curious for God’s revelation on the matter.

[b]What could be the meaning of 30 pieces of silver coin that was valued [/b] [b]for our Lord Jesus-for Judas to deliver Him to high priest of that time [/b] [b]as written on?<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />[/b]   Matthew 26:15 “And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for [b]thirty pieces of silver[/b]. Zecariah 11:12 “And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price [b]thirty pieces of silver.[/b] [url=mk:@MSITStore:C:Documents and Settingsart.bargaMy Documentskjvkjv.chm::/B40C027.htm#V9]Matt 27:9[/url] Zecariah 11:13 “And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the [b]thirty pieces of silver[/b], and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD. [url=mk:@MSITStore:C:Documents and Settingsart.bargaMy Documentskjvkjv.chm::/B40C027.htm#V10]Matt 27:10[/url] [b]Let us see what are silvers connote as written in[/b] Zecariah 13:8 “And it shall come to pass, [b][u]that in all the land[/u][/b], saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. Zecariah 13:9 “And I will bring the [b]third part[/b] [b]through the fire, and will refine them as [u]silver is refined[/u],[/b] and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: [b][u]I[/u][/b][u] [b]will say, It is my people[/b][/u]: and they shall say, The LORD is my God. Psalms 66:10 “For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried. [b]With the preceding verses the third part of the land will be left and [/b][b]will be purified just like the silver. [/b] [b]How about the land, what indicates it? Let us see what the verse hereunder says[/b] Jeremiah 22:29 “O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD” [b]It speaks to someone who could hear so this should be a man. [/b] [b]Therefore, these are the children of God (I will say, It is my people-[/b]Zecariah 13:9[b])[/b] [b]Wherein two parts of him should be taken away are reprobate attributes and the third part is the attribute that made up the children of God.  [/b] [b] [/b] [b]Further as written in;[/b] [b] [/b] Psalms 66:10 “For thou, O God, [b][u]hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried[/u][/b] [b][u] [/u][/b] [b]And what is the content of silver coin? This is the information found at [/b] [b][u][url=http://www.thediamondbuyingguide.com/preciousmetalsguide-silver.html]www.thediamondbuyingguide.com/preciousmetalsguide-silver.html[/url][/u][/b] [b]An excerpted portion :[/b] [b] [/b] [b] [/b] [b] [/b] [b]Silver Purity[/b] In its pure form silver is almost as soft as gold, and therefore is usually alloyed with copper for strength. Karatage is not marked because, legally, anything called "silver" or "sterling silver" is 92.5% pure. Sometimes silver from south of the border is designated "Mexican silver," which runs anywhere from 90% to 99% pure. Purity is really not something to worry about with silver. [b]Alloys[/b] [b][u]Coin Silver: 90% (900 parts) pure silver[/u][/b] and 10% (100 parts) metal alloy. A process of melting down coins done in the 19th century, and mostly discarded today   [b]With this information the third part of 90% (pure silver) is 30%(90%/3) and as mentioned this third part is the attribute belonging and pleases God, [/b] [b]This made up the children of God.[/b] [b] [/b] [b]And what is to be expected from children of God as written on[/b] [b] [/b] Leviticus 27:30 “And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD's: [b][u]it is holy unto the LORD[/u][/b]. [b]It was learned from verses above that land signifies the children of God and for more enlightenment on tithes, it is suggested that article –Tithes and Offering be read in this website. [/b] Lev 27:32 “And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, [b][u]the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD.[/u][/b] [b]So the tenth of the third part is the one being considered to be of  the lord because the third part (children of God) is the one the Lord will refine as silver. That is 30%/10=(3%).[/b] [b]With that the Lord has this to say as it is written:[/b] Deut 8:13 “And when [b][u]thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;[/u][/b] Heb 6:14 “Saying, [b][url=mk:@MSITStore:C:Documents and Settingsart.bargaMy Documentskjvkjv.chm::/B01C022.htm#V17]Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.[/url] [/b] Deut 1:10 [b][u]“The LORD your God hath multiplied you[/u][/b], and, behold, ye are this day as the stars of heaven for multitude. Deut 1:11 “[b]The LORD God of your fathers make you a [u]thousand times[/u][/b] so many more as ye are, and bless you, as he hath promised you!).   [b]Is not that a cause for children of God to rejoice for what are within them will become thousand folds? And those thousand and thousand folds that are holy to the Lord, is the price paid for His life, 3 % of 1000 = .03 x 1000 = 30 these are the 30 pieces of silver coin.    [/b]
