"How did Judas die?" (Alleged Contradiction #E6242)
Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.
And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself. And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood. And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in.
Both events happened to Judas. After hanging himself, his dead body must have fallen (perhaps due to the rope or branch breaking). 1
