Why did the Romans use silver, when paying Judas for his betrayal of Jesus?
I think the Romans were aware and did use gold. So, again why silver?
It wasn't the Romans. The ones that paid Judas were the Jewish priests. And I suppose that he wasn't paid in gold because it wasn't that common. Silver was a far more common currency, and 30 pieces of silver was a significant amount for a common man. The price of a slave, it says on another Bible verse. Plus it was then used to buy the same field where Judas killed himself.
