Matthew 27:3-6 "Then when Judas, who had betrayed Him, saw that He had been condemned, he felt remorse and returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4saying, "I have sinned by betraying innocent blood." But they said, "What is that to us? See to that yourself!" 5And he threw the pieces of silver into the sanctuary and departed; and he went away and hanged himself. 6 He threw the money away and then hanged himself. There is no mentioning of Judas returning and picking up the money and then buying a field. But in acts it suddenly says he bought a field. How does this fit together? Why should Judas quickly have bought a field before killing himself? And also in Matthew it says Judas hanged himself and in acts it says he fell headlong and burst open. Acts 1:16-18 "Brethren, the Scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit foretold by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus. 17"For he was counted among us, and received his portion in this ministry." 18(Now this man acquired a field with the price of his wickedness; and falling headlong, he burst open in the middle and all his bowels gushed out. 19 And it became known to all who were living in Jerusalem; so that in their own language that field was called Hakeldama, that is, Field of Blood.)"
