For Judas and the chief priests and their company, Jesus was worth 30 silver coins.  For Satan, whatever it was disposed in his power—i.e., all the authority of the kingdoms of the world and their glory (Matthew 4:8-9; Luke 4:6-7).

Jesus, however traded His life for mine.

He’s already mine, not because of anything I’ve done.  It is a gift.  And I am His.

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. – Ephesians 2:8,9 (ESVUK)

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ – Mark 12:30 (ESVUK)

Were the whole realm of nature mine, That were a present far too small: Love so amazing, so divine, Demands my soul, my life, my all. – Isaac Watts (When I Survey the Wondrous Cross)
