Good Friday And $800/ounce Silver

Recommended Posts

As it is Good Friday;

Judas received money (30 pieces of silver) (Matthew 26:14-16) for betraying Jesus and told the guards that whomever he kisses is the one they are to arrest.

In New Testament times, the shekel was the value of about four drachmas (a Greek coin) or four denarii (a Roman coin). It would be in weight a little less than half an ounce of silver. It's value as currency would be the common wages for a laboring man for four days, or in today's value perhaps around $400 to $500.

The thirty pieces of silver, then, would be worth around $12,000 to $15,000 in today's sum.

$12,000 / 15 = $800/ounce !!!!

Mmmmm. Not sure that picking $100 a day as a typical labouring job is valid. This website suggests that a skilled job like software engineer pays 20 egyptian pounds an hour, or £2UK an hour, or £16 a day ~ £64 or roughly $100US for 4 days. That's the closest I can find to a late iron age labourer in the modern middle east/north africa :D.

The thirty pieces of silver, then, would be worth around 30 x $100 = $3000.

$3000 / 15 = $200 Oz.

Still, I'd be happy to sell my Ag for that.....
