RSV: "If the ox gores a slave, male or female, the owner shall give to their master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be stoned."

The "30 shekels of silver" screams at me of Judas. I am not sure if I'm trying to make a connection where none save a number exists, or if there is something here. Any takers? This passage is about justice. Satan always likes to invert justice, or any other thing Our Lord does. Christ being sold for thirty pieces of silver, He being put to death like an ox that gored a slave, when in reality He freely gave His life for us as the perfect offering, priest and victim to bring us out of slavery into freedom; not as payment He owed for some evil He did, as the ox, but as for evil we did/do/will do.

Something here. My spidey--er, muley-senses are tingling. My long ears are pricked.

Look at Haydock. They were definitely making a statement when they paid this to Judas.

You can only get shekels in Israel.

Hebrews had special meanings for certain numbers. 7 for instance being that of completion/perfection. Maybe 30 has a meaning that is not so good? Dunno. Just speculating.
