    According to an account in the Gospel of Matthew 26:15 in the New Testament. Before the Last Supper, Judas is said to have gone to the chief priests and agreed to hand over Jesus in exchange for 30 silver coins. Did you know? Today “Thirty pieces of silver” is used proverbially to refer to anything paid or given for a treacherous act. As “Judas” proverbially is used to describe an individual who sells out his/her friends for their own personal benefit. At the Last Supper, Jesus kissed Judas, which also gives us the expression a “Judas kiss” or “Kiss of Death” refers to "an act appearing to be an act of friendship, which is in fact harmful to the recipient." A famous example of the Judas kiss permeating in popular culture is in the movie, the “Godfather ll” when Michael Corleone kisses his brother saying, “I know it was you Fredo.”
