Article on Marcion Available in Revised Form

For four years, Peter Kirby hosted a number of my articles at his Christian Origins site. The site has been down for a while now, so I have started reformatting and revising those articles and hosting them at the Christian CADRE site. The first article now available is Marcion, the Canon, the Law, and the Historical Jesus. Moderately revised, it is an overview of Marcion's background, teachings, and effect on the development of early Christianity.

Fascinating article. Interestingly one of the radical Paul doubters, Hermann Detering, surmises that behind the story of Simon Magus's attempt to buy the power of God is Marcion's generous gift to the Church. Doesn't seem like a close fit, though.

Surmises, eh?

WAG might be a better descriptive.
