“What is that to us?” they replied. “That’s your responsibility.”
5 So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself.
After seeing our church bury a young suicide victim, the Bible's most famous one came to mind; apples and oranges, since our youngster was fighting off some mental issues rather than selling his Lord up the river. Judas is seen as the heavy here, and rightly so, but the heavier heavies are the Sanhedrin, who don't give a rodent's rump about Judas' remorse.
These are supposed to be the spiritual leaders of their people, and they're got hearts that make the Grinch's look huge; you can fit that heart in a flea's navel and still have room for [a few other minute things of folks you'd like to insult; that's left as an exercise for the reader].
