So what happened to Judas and what did he do with 30 peices of silver that he got for betraying Jesus...?
Matthew 27:5 - "So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself."
Acts 1:18 - "With the reward he got for his wickedness, Judas bought a field; there he fell headlong, his body burst open and all his intestines spilled out."

While I haven't fact checked your quotes, it wouldn't' surprise me in the least that there is yet another contradiction in the Jesus Myth.
THIS contradiction is nothing compared to the various edited-out texts of the bible related to Judas, such as the Gospel of Judas which shows that Jesus had himself killed by ordering Judas to turn him in... Making it suicide, not sacrifice. (Which is why it hit the cutting room floor over the myth that Jesus was a victim, since Suicide was deemed a sin before the "Final Version" of the bible, which has since again been spun into dozens of versions, was established.)

The first scripture deals with the suicide attempt. The second scripture deals with the actual result. Judas apparently tried to hang himself over a cliff and in the process, the tree branch broke which caused his body to fall down below and burst open. Judas threw the betrayal money away as the first scripture brought out and the religious leaders were the ones that actually purchased the field.
But since it was Judas' money, it was credited to him as the one buying the field as brought out in the second scripture. Judas because of his wickedness committed the unforgivable sin. Jesus Christ himself referred to him as the son of destruction and that it would been finer for him if he had not been born. So therefore, Judas will not be in the heavenly Kingdom. He went to the symbolic place in the Bible called Gehenna. He is eternally dead and will never be resurrected.

Matthew 27:5-8 says, "So Judas threw the cash into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself. The chief clergymen picked up the coins and stated, ‘it's towards the legislation to put this into the treasury, seeing that it is blood cash.’ so that they made up our minds to make use of the cash to purchase the potter's area as a burial location for foreigners. Because of this it has been called the area of Blood to nowadays." Acts 1:18-19 says, "With the reward he acquired for his wickedness, Judas bought a area; there he fell headlong, his physique burst open and all his intestines spilled out. Everyone in Jerusalem heard about this, so that they called that field in their language Akeldama, that is, discipline of Blood." Which is proper? Did Judas cling himself or did he fall? Did Judas buy the field or did the clergymen purchase the discipline? Judas hanged himself within the potter’s subject (Matthew 27:5), after which, after his physique decayed and bloated, certainly the rope broke, and he burst into pieces on the land of the potter’s subject (Acts 1:18-19). The Acts passage presumes Judas' hanging, as a man falling down in a subject does now not influence in his body bursting open. Simplest decomposition and a fall from a peak could rationale a physique to burst open. When Judas threw the thirty pieces of silver down, the clergymen took the money and used it to purchase the potter’s subject (Matthew 27:7), no longer figuring out that Judas used to be going to hang himself there. Judas won't have bought the field himself, nevertheless it was the cash Judas obtained for betraying Jesus that purchased the discipline. Catholic Christian †

Matthew doesn't necessarily explain how Judas died; he does say Judas "hanged himself", but he didn't specifically say Judas died in the hanging incident. However, Acts seems to show us his graphic demise. Therefore, there is no contradiction between Matthew and Acts re: Judas' death.
Lots of people try unsuccessfully to hang themselves and fail, is it possible Judas tried to hang himself and failed and fell?Source(s): Meditating on the two passages of scripture in question, and coming to a reasonable conclution.

I always wanted to know who gave him silver for doing it as at the time salt was worth FAR FAR more.
Today its like saying "here have 30 bars of chocolate and go do something bad" (chocolate cuz its easter lol)
Seriously In Zechariah 11:12–13 he too was paid 30 pieces of silver and he threw them away as they were not worth a drachma. (today we have the phrase not worth a damn or not worth a dime)

Leviticus 27:34 - "So Judas bought some hookers and had a pretty sweet time. Unknown to him he had caught an STD."

Yes, the Pharisees bought a field with the blood money (on Judas' behalf).
Stop making excuses and repent already. It's the best thing you'll ever do for yourself.

He hung himself, and the rope that was tied on the branch in the cemetery broke and his body opened up. The same death from two different views.

The other Bible verse said he fell and cracked his head, and his guts spilled out.
