Marcion of Sinope lived during the second century A.D. and is known as one of the greatest heretics of his day and history. It is unclear whether or not Marcion was a Gnostic, but his teaching was influenced by Gnosticism. Marcion drew a great distinction by separating flesh and spirit, law and gospel, the god of Israel and the Father of Jesus, and the Old and the New Testament. Marcion’s theology lead him to ultimately eliminate the Old Testament from the Bible along with the parts of the New Testament that contradicted his theory.
