I is for Iscariot

I don’t know how old Judas Iscariot was when he killed himself after turning Jesus over to the Roman authorities for 30 pieces of silver but since he was a contemporary of the 33-year old carpenter’s son, I think it’s safe to say he was less than 50 years old when he died.
Cornelia Parker’s “Thirty Pieces of Silver,” is one of my favorite art installations.

I never thought about it, but you're right. We've never been told how old Judas was when he hung himself.
