New Defender's Study Bible Notes

11:12 thirty pieces of silver. For the fulfillment of this remarkable prophecy five hundred years later, see Matthew 26:14-16. “Thirty pieces of silver” was the value placed on the fatal goring of a man’s slave by his neighbor’s ox (Exodus 21:32). The value of this divine Servant to His nation was greater than the wealth of the entire world, yet its leaders appraised His death as worth only the price of a dead slave.
