- Zech 11:12-13: Thirty pieces of silver. See the NET notes on this passage for references to an argument that thirty is a number representing a paltry amount. Note also that this passage is what is quoted in Matt 27:9-10 in describing Judas's betrayal of Jesus. (See also this comment at Jim F.'s T&S lesson notes, and ensuing discussion, for a couple other thoughts about this passage.)

Footnotes are not required but are encouraged for factual assertions that average readers cannot easily evaluate for themselves, such as the date of King Solomon’s death or the nuanced definition of a Greek word. In contrast, insights rarely benefit from footnoting, and the focus of this page should always remain on the scriptures themselves rather than what someone has said about them. Links are actively encouraged on all sections of this page, and links to authoritative sources are preferable to footnotes.
