ExoTheology & Space-Age Interpretations of the Bible

(religious implications of an inhabited universe)

Note to self: Marcion and the Old Testament “lower” God

During Christianity’s early expansion, many converts to the new faith either had no interest in preserving Jewish Scripture as part of the Christian sacred books, or believed that much in the Old Testament was inspired by a “lower” God who could not be identified with the Father of Jesus.

Most significant example = Marcion

— from The Oxford Study Bible (REB with the apocrypha), 1992, p. 131.
