I was just watching a documentary about Judas Iscariot and it was talking about how "certain sects" of Christianity consider Judas to be a Saint and believe he was the "best" of the apostles because he willingly took on the damnation of handing Jesus over, even though he knew of his divinity.
So I'm wondering what "sects" believe this? And where can I find more information on these beliefs?
One of my biggest issues with the story of Jesus' betrayal and death was always that I saw Judas as the good guy while most stories showed him as some evil person. To me though, he had to do what he did or you couldn't have had the outcome you had, which is supposed to be the entire point... So I'm curious to know more about this line of beliefs.
I'm gonna watch the documentary again, but I figured I'd ask here too...

I can't think for you
You'll have to decide
Whether Judas Iscariot
Had God on his side.
I think Judas was a close friend and follower to Jesus. I wouldn't want my life summed up in my lowest moment.
