How Did Judas Really Die?

8 Apr

How did Judas Iscariot die? The Bible gives us what looks like two different manners of death. One version is that he hung himself. The other states that he fell headlong and his bowels gushed out. So which is it? Can both versions be right? Absolutely! For the Bible does not contradict itself. If you remember, there was a big earthquake at the moment Jesus gave up His spirit on the Cross. The curtain of the sanctuary of the temple was ripped in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks were split. That’s a mighty violent earthquake if rocks can be broken up and torn apart.


It makes perfect sense that this violent shaking of the earth broke the noose around Judas’ neck and sent  him spiraling headlong where he burst open in the middle and all his entrails gushed out. (Acts 1:18)  It’s amazing that very few Christians have ever considered this. Many are confused and believe this is just one of many contradictions in the Scriptures. Some just shrug their shoulders and say it’s ok if there are some mistakes in the Bible, after all, men have had centuries to tamper with it. It’s OK if the Holy Bible isn’t God’s inerrant, infallible word.
