Please note, I have been mentioning the Galilee one for some years as an evidence for non-Markan priority and the authenticity of the traditional ending.

yeah no, it's an absolutely laughable position, you should feel stupid

Re: The Gospel of Marcion Cannot Have Been Derived from the Gospel of Mark

Perhaps in the second - third century it was used as a consensus document. Everyone agreed to have it in their bible and were aligned with those churches that did, but didnt necessarily use each one in their liturgy.

Re: Evolution and the Gospels

The tradition that GMark is associated with the apostle Peter is apparently older than Irenaeus. GMark was protected as the memories of Peter and not even Irenaeus could have wiped out GMark.

Re: Was the birth story in Luke/Matthew originally referred to John the Baptist

Barabbas refers polemically to the Son of Father of a totally different sect of Christians, i.e. gentile Christians who adored a Jesus who was not the son of YHWH and was rather an enemy of YHWH.

Re: Evolution and the Gospels

Furthermore, the idea of an original college of apostles, not including Paul, is established both within the Gospel narratives and through the Gospel titles. Went to check my copy of Marcion and--contrary to what I expected--he does appear to have Luke's notion of "the 12 apostles." The other 3 eva...
