Kerameikos[edit]

The original cemetery of Athens was also the potter's quarters. Perhaps you want to mention the site as another possible source of the name "Potter's Field"

plagiarism[edit]

First sentence as it stands is plagiarized from the American Heritage Dictionary. Can someone revise it?

Maybe a little more?[edit]

In looking at this article as it stands, it fails to really convey the current uses behind Potter's Field. Do we want to leave it like this? Or add to it? Any current thoughts? Wikiport (talk) 05:27, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

scripture[edit]

Curious about Matthew 27:7 I pulled out my bible and looked it up. The piece writen exspands into 3 verses.

Matthew 27:5-8

5: And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple,and depated, and went and hanged himself. 6: And the chief priests took the silver pieces and said, it is not lawful to put but them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood. 7:And they took to counsel, and bought with them the potter's field to bury strangers in. 8:Where for that field was called , The field of blood, unto this day.

Wallabout Bay[edit]

The part about a section of the East River seems to come from a Joseph Mitchell book called The bottom of the harbor. This book is a work of fiction and seemed unworthy of being used as a citation. The part from the book says its actual name is Wallabout Bay.--DataSurfer (talk) 21:21, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

References to Jeremiah and Zechariah[edit]

I added these as they seem relevant and are in the Good News study bible.

Also, as there is a Potter's Field album, a place in Omaha of the same name, a song (by Tom Waits) and well as this page is there not a good case for a Potter's Field disambiguation page?  SmokeyTheCat  •TALK• 12:24, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
