Marcion: Bigger than Q

Post by Peter Kirby » Mon Sep 07, 2015 6:00 pm

Looking over the discernable data from scanning blog posts with an automated word-tagger, it appears that Marcion is officially more popular than Q. This implies that Marcion's canon has surpassed Q as the most popular 'reconstructed' ancient Christian text to talk about these days!

You can see more of this (bigger text = more frequent mentions) at Christian Origins, on the right hand side:
"... almost every critical biblical position was earlier advanced by skeptics." - Raymond Brown
