Judas Bargains for Jesus Death

Then Jesus said to his disciples:

You know that in two days it will be Passover, and the Son of man is going to be delivered up to be crucified.

The chief priests and elders gathered together to hold court with the high priest Caiaphas.

And they began planning how they would arrest Jesus without creating a crisis with the people, and then put him to death.

They feared the people.

Satan entered into Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve disciples.

Judas went to meet with the chief priests and captains to discuss how he might deliver Jesus up to them.

Judas asked:

What will you pay me to deliver Jesus up to you?

When the chief priests heard that Judas was willing to give up Jesus, they were glad. They agreed to pay Judas thirty pieces of silver.

Judas agreed, and from that time on he looked for an opportunity to deliver Jesus up to the Jewish leaders, when there were no crowds around.
