The main points of Marcion's teaching were the rejection of the Old Testament and a distinction between the Supreme God of goodness and an inferior God of justice, who was the Creator and God of the Jews. He regarded Christ as the messenger of the Supreme God.

The Old and New Testaments, Marcion argued, cannot be reconciled to each other. When we study Marcion, it should be obvious that the vast majority of New Testament books were already recognized as part of the New Testament canon.

Marcion's specific removal and denial of many New Testament books from his own canon, including all of Peter, James and John, proves they were already in use between AD and widely accepted.

Epiphanius, observing how Marcion had disturbed the order of St. Paul's epistles, says, that in some editions of the New Testament, the epistle to the Hebrews was the fourteenth, in others the tenth, being placed before the two epistles to Timothy, and the epistles to Titus and Philemon: and that in all good copies the epistle to the Romans was.

As Dr. Fisher explained, Marcion rejected "the entire Old Testament, [and] settled for Luke's Gospel (eliminating chapters 1 & 2 as too Jewish) and Paul's letters (except for the pastoral ones)." "The Canon of the New Testament," by Milton Fisher, in. Marcion joins the ranks of the so-called Apostolic Fathers as a witness to the very earliest recoverable forms of New Testament texts.

Yet, because he did not merely make occasional quotations from or allusions to their content as other Apostolic Fathers did, but compiled and disseminated complete editions of them, Marcion far exceeds such other early witnesses in the extent of evidence he.

Marcion. Marcion wrote the first canon of the New Testament in AD For centuries Marcion has been maligned as a heretic, since the Church Fathers like Tertullian accused him of taking the razor to the Bible and cutting out several of the Pauline epistles; Acts, 1 & 2 Timothy and Titus.

Christ, so Marcion contended, came down from heaven and began teaching, proclaiming a new kingdom and deliverance from the rule of the malevolent Demiurge. However, those who were loyal to the Demiurge crucified Christ, thus unwittingly contributing to the defeat of the former, since the death of Christ was the price by which the God of Love.

Marcion’s church was rigorous, demanding, inspiring, well-organized, and for about a century fairly successful. Marcion’s theological errors (and there were many) came from one main root: he refused to believe that the God of the Old Testament was the same as the Father of Author: Kevin Deyoung.

In this bold undertaking, Jason BeDuhn sets forth, for the first time, a complete English translation of the Bible of Marcion. With a useful introduction to all relevant issues, a readable translation of this First New Testament, and copious notes supporting each textual decision, BeDuhn has provided a work of scholarship that is sure to be both welcomed and controversial/5(8).

In order to understand Marcion’s necessity of a “bible,” one must first attempt to understand his views. Like many people today – Christians and non-Christians alike – Marcion struggled to reconcile the God of the Old Testament, an inflexible God of justice, with the God of the New Testament, a redeeming and merciful Messiah.

The intention of the redactional frame of the New Testament is so important because it sheds some light on the time, date, and situation where the New Testament originated. Marcion, one of the most imposing figures of second-century Christianity, was born in northern Asia Minor and about came to Rome, where he was excommunicated from the.

While upholding the historicity of the Old Testament (unlike his successor Apelles), Marcion did not uphold its authority. After all, he believed that those who believed in the creator of the world (the god of the Old Testament) were those responsible for nailing Jesus to the cross, the God of the New Testament.

According to p. He [Tertullian] defends, one by one, each of the Pauline Epistles, expressing astonishment that Marcion has rejected the two Epistles to Timothy and the one to Titus: 'His aim was, I suppose, to carry out his interpolating process even to the number of [Paul's] Epistles'.(Adversus Marcion, ).

Valentinus, tracing his authority through Theodas to Paul, makes the same general use of New Testament books, and Tertullian tells us that he appeared to use the whole New Testament as then known. The most noted of the Gnostics was Marcion, a native of Pontus.

DeBuhn is well aware that his work offers an extraordinary amount of questions about Pauls legacy, Marcion, and the birth of the New Testament. DeBuhns The First New Testament challenges a lot of the assumptions people have made about Marcion and his version of the New Testament and forces readers to engage Marcion beyond the black and white 5/5.

The first edition, according to Trobisch, is not Marcion's canon, but a reaction to Marcion's Canon. From the review by Price you cited: The sharp-eyed Trobisch accepts the thinking of John Knox (Marcion and the New Testament, ) and Hans von Campenhausen (The Formation of the Christian Bible, ) that the New Testament in the form we have it is largely a counterstrike against the.

the New Testament becomes apparent. If, as both Clabeaux and Schmid have independently found, Marcionite revisions of the New Testament text were very minor, then Marcion's text would be a valuable witness to the text of the New Testament as known in Rome, prior to (the date of Marcion's expulsion from the Roman church).

The earliest list of New Testament books of which we have definite knowledge was drawn up at Rome by the heretic Marcion about Marcion distinguished the inferior Creator-God of the Old Testament from the God and Father revealed in Christ, and believed that the Church ought to jettison all that appertained to the former.

For Marcion, Jesus was the Son of the God of the New Testament but not the Son of the deity described in the Hebrew Scriptures. The deities of the Old and New Testaments were, from Marcion’s perspective, literally two different gods. Marcion did not deny the existence of the god of the Old Testament (what he referred to as a Demiurge).

It intends to combine the traditional 27 books of the New Testament along with 10 apocryphal writings from early Christianity.

As I observed in a prior post, there is nothing particularly “new” about this sort of project—it has been tried again and again since the time of Marcion.

Marcion was an early Christian bishop who taught that the entire Old Testament should be rejected, and that Paul was the only apostle that could be trusted.

Is the ghost of Marcion still at large in the Church today? Are Paul's letters given more authority then the rest of the Scriptures?

Daniel Botkin explains.Marcion, for example, teaching in the middle second century, rejected the Old Testament and most of what is today our New Testament, creating his own short version of just a few New Testament writings.
