Marcion of Sinope

Marcion of Sinope (Greek: Μαρκίων Σινώπης; c. 85 – c. 160) was an important leader in early Christianity. His theology rejected the deity described in the Hebrew Scriptures and in distinction affirmed the Father of Christ as the true God.


  • O wonder beyond wonders, rapture, power, and amazement is it, that one can say nothing at all about the gospel, nor even conceive of it, nor compare it with anything.
    • Possibly the opening lines of Marcion's Antithesis. Quoted in Marcion and Luke-Acts: A Defining Struggle (2006) by Joseph B. Tyson, p. 31.
