If Jesus was sold-out for thirty pieces of silver. Assuming that these pieces were roughly an ounce each. At todays prices that would be about $1095.
What do you think 30 oz of silver represented in terms of valuation back then? Did it represent one weeks labor? One months labor? One years labor? If at todays price of $1095, that's only about one weeks wages for much of society.
Just something to think about.
