Potter's Field

Resource Toolbox

The field that was bought with the thirty pieces of silver paid to Judas for the betrayal of the Lord is thus called. Matthew 27:7-10 . It is added, "then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet." Nothing is found in Jeremiah corresponding to the words quoted; but there is something similar in Zechariah 11:12,13 . Jeremiah is said to havespoken the words; the reference therefore may be to something he had said, and not to what he had written. Or it is possible that as the Jews anciently placed Jeremiah at the beginning of the Book of the Prophets (Ezekiel, Isaiah, and the twelve minor prophets following), 'Jeremiah' may have been a sort of heading for the whole. Zechariah is quoted in the N.T. but never named there. See ACELDAMA.
