But the chief priests having taken the pieces of silver, said: It is not lawful to put them into the corbona
, because it is the price of blood. 7
And after they had consulted together, they bought with them the potter's field, to be a burying place for strangers. 8
For this cause the field was called Haceldama, that is, The field of blood, even to this day. 9
Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremias the prophet, saying: And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was prized, whom they prized of the children of Israel. 10
And they gave them unto the potter's field, as the Lord appointed to me.
BUT THIS ONE SAYS Acts 1:16 Men, brethren, the scripture must needs be fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost spoke before by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who was the leader of them that apprehended Jesus: 17
Who was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry. 18 And he indeed hath possessed a field of the reward of iniquity, and being hanged, burst asunder in the midst: and all his bowels gushed out. 19
And it became known to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
God cannot contradict himself.but one of these verses says that Judas bought that field,another says that the leader bought it.well...I know that it is unimportant but after reading theses verses I was tempted against the faith.I just asked this question to overcome temptation.
