The First New Testament

Marcion's Scriptural Canon

Jason D. BeDuhn (author)

ISBN: 9781598151312

Publication Date: Oct 2013

Format: Paperback

History preserves the name of the person responsible for the first New Testament, the circumstances surrounding his work, and even the date he decided to build a textual foundation for his fledgling Christian community. So why do so few people know about him? Jason BeDuhn introduces Marcion, reconstructs his text, and explores his impact on the study of Luke-Acts, the two-source theory, and the Q hypothesis.
