    Marcion. Marcion of Sinope Marcion (84 - c AD), born at Sinope in Pontus, the son of a bishop, he traveled to Rome circa and became a member of the church there. Developing some eccentric theological views, he eventually taught that the god of the Old Testament was not the true God but rather that the true and higher God had been revealed only with Jesus Christ. Ostensibly an attempt to recapture “primitive” Christianity, this movement derives its name from Marcion, a wealthy shipowner, son of a bishop, and probably a bishop himself, who arrived in Rome around The Church was still in its infancy, and it can be argued that Marcionism was the most dangerous heresy yet to plague it.

Nothing less than a restatement of faith would do, and for Marcion that restatement had to focus on what for him was the essential gospel: the love, mercy and compassion displayed in the life and teachings of : Kevin Deyoung.

    Adolf von Harnack, Marcion: The Gospel of the Alien God. Trans. John E. Steely and Lyle D. Bierma. Labyrinth Press, Reviewed by Robert M. Price. T he outlines of Harnack's landmark monograph on Marcion are well known from summaries and discussions of it as well as through the German original. But it is an event worthy of note for the work to appear in English, . The title of this book is: ‘Heretics; the other side of early Christianity’. Although this book is a little dated (first print in ) I can recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about heretics and Marcion in particular (who Lüdemann calls the ‘Arch Heretic’).
