Judas had let Jesus down.


He had helped the leaders to catch Jesus.



The leaders gave him money for helping them.

They gave him 30 silver coins.


Judas heard that Jesus was going to be killed.

He took the silver coins back to the leaders.

“Jesus is not guilty”, he said.

“He has done nothing wrong.”

The leaders said, “We don’t care; that’s your problem.”


Judas threw the money down on the floor and went out.



Matthew 27:1-5.
