Then one of the twelve, whose name was Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and said, "What will you give me if I deliver him over to you?" And they paid him thirty pieces of silver. And from that moment he sought an opportunity to betray him.
(Mat 26:14-16 ESV)
"The root of compromise is often a consideration of personal reputation."
What do you suppose Judas could have possibly done with thirty pieces of silver? Maybe he was looking to buy just a little more comfort for himself?
