Bible Prophecy - 30 Pieces of Silver

Updated on January 19, 2013

This is one of many "snippets" to be posted, concerning Bible Prophecy which is a subject that enamors all of us. And when I say "all of us," I mean ALL OF US, believers and non-believers alike. And, unlike the writings of folks like Nostrodamus, these prophecies are not hit and miss.

Truth is, at times, harder to believe than fiction. But the truths of the Bible stand and defend themselves in their completion.

Bible Prophecy, or should I say the undeniable words of the prophets of God are what brought me to Faith in Jesus Christ. If you do not know Him as yet, I hope these snippets will help you in your quest for truth, Romans 10:9-10.

Not all Bible Prophecies have been completed as yet, but there are more than enough that have, which should lead the objective mind to a position that God, and His Book, can be trusted. This is one of those truths.

Zechariah was a prophet of Israel. He began his ministry in about 520 BC during the reign of Darius, the Persian. This would be about 550 before the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. His writings contain many predictions. Those that have been completed are exact. Many, concern the future and are yet to be completed. Of note for this Hub is a prediction concerning Jesus Christ.

Take special interest in the fact that those who completed this prophecy, were the same ones that were trying to disprove that Jesus Christ was God.


Zechariah 11:12-13


(12) And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver . (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 thirty pieces of silver , and cast them to the potter in the house of the Lord.


Matthew 26:14-15


(14) Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, (15) And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver .


Matthew 27:3-7


(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.

Do you believe God? John 3:16
