MYTH: Shortly after the 30 pieces of silver were returned.
TRUTH: 40 days after God raised Jesus from the dead.
Now that you know how Judas died, it is equally important to understand when he died. It is believed by many that he did so immediately after this event:
Matt 27:3-5 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he (Jesus) was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that. And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself. KJV
