To my knowledge, Marcion believed that both the demiurge and the Good God were against Satan (matter). The difference was only that the demiurge combated (vainly) the evil matter with evil matter. Whereas the Good God had no connection at all with the matter. This is still pure dualism between good and evil.

To this end, while I think there is something of mystic significance to the Barabbas narrative,
"mystic"? Really? It is a mere sarcastic parody and a public defamation to call someone a murderer and a "scelestus". It is like to be accused publicly of mafia. Only a divine laugh (by a true Jesus seen behind the criminal Barabbas) could cast a parody in a "mystic" meaning. But even a such divine laugh betrayes the cynicism of what was previously meant as a sarcastic parody addressed against a rival sect.
