Judas Iscariot: With God on Our Side

Judas, who?
Judas Iscariot, that's who.

He whose name has long been synonymous with betrayal and selling out for thirty pieces of silver.

I see he is back in the news: Guardian
Re-evaluation, what-ho!

But, my sweet, my pretty one, has no one ever listened to the last-but-one verse of the 1963 Bob Dylan song With God on Our Side? Forthwith, exhibit one:
In a many dark hour
I've been thinkin' about this
That Jesus Christ
Was betrayed by a kiss
But I can't think for you
You'll have to decide
Whether Judas Iscariot
Had God on his side.
