Judas “the betrayer” is mentioned over 30 times in the Christian New Testament. The similarity of the names of Judas and Jews makes the intention of the story suspect since the Christians classify Jews as evil in their New Testament which glorifies Christianity as the replacing religion of Judaism. The Gospel of Judas portrays Judas as a trusted disciple and acted according to the wished of Jesus. If Jesus intentionally died for everyone’s sins according to his plan then there was no unintentional death by the betrayal of Judas.

Matthew did not know Matthew 27:5
Who bought the land “Blood Acre”?
Now, this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity. Acts 1:18

Jeremiah’s 30 Pieces of Silver?
NOT Christians claim the verse in Jerimiah prophesized the 30 pieces of silver.
Again, Christians demand that you to “Just Believe”, and don’t think you will check up on them.
And they consulted together and bought with them the potter’s field to bury strangers in. Therefore that field has been called the Field of Blood to this day. Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, ‘And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the value of Him and who was priced, whom they and the children of Israel priced. And gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord directed me.’ Matthew 27:7-10 citing Jeremiah 32:6-9
Jeremiah referred to seven shekels and 10 pieces of silver and not to a potter’s field, but to house plots, fields, and vineyards.
Behold, Hanamel, the son of your uncle Shallum, is coming to you to say, ‘Buy yourself my field that is in Anathoth, for upon you is the law of redemption, to buy it … I weighed out the money for him; seven shekels and ten pieces … For thus said Hashem, Master of Legions, God of Israel,; ‘Houses, fields and vineyards will yet be bought in this land.’ Jeremiah 32:6, 32:9 32:15.
Jeremiah land was a land of hope and restoration NOT a negative portrayal of guilt and death. And NO 30 pieces of silver.
Zechariah's 30 Pieces of Silver
10 Then I took my staff called Favor and broke it, revoking the covenant I had made with all the nations.
11 It was revoked on that day, and so the oppressed of the flock who were watching me knew it was the word of theLord.
12 I told them, “If you think it best, give me my pay; but if not, keep it.” So they paid me thirty pieces of silver.
13 And the Lord said to me, “Throw it to the potter”—the handsome price at which they valued me! So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them to the potter at the house of the Lord.
14 Then I broke my second staff called Union, breaking the family bond between Judah and Israel.
This is not Jeremiah as Matthew quoted. It is Zechariah. It is the only mention of 30 pieces of silver. And the context is totally different than that is quoted by Matthew as prophesy.
