15. Didn't Judas throw himself off a cliff? (He also hung himself)
In fact, that's one of those pesky biblical contradictions. I guess Judas died twice.

He fell down and died.

Mt.27:5
"And he {Judas} cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself."
http://www.skepticsannotatedbible.com/mt/27.html#5


Acts 1:18
" Now this man {Judas} purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out."
