Marcion didn't believe in the Parousia

Post by Giuseppe »

Mark 8.38.
If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.

Marcion is polemically meant, here. His theology didn't need the parousia, since the price had been bought, the demiurge had had what he had to have, the humanity is already redeemed, period.
