"Who bought Potter’s Field?" (Alleged Contradiction #E9506)
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 it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.
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. Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day.
Although the Pharisees made the actual transaction, they used Judas’s money (“the reward of iniquity”). Judas’s part of the purchase is evident in its name, “The Field of Blood”.
