The Jesus Seminar folks fascinate me.  They are so committed to their presuppositions that they go to incredible lengths to reimagine the Gospels.  They cant bear the idea that the miracles happened.  That Christ was raised.  That God exists.Marcion proves this sentiment is as old as the Gospels themselves.  Marcion was among the first heretics.  He couldnt countenance the God of the Old Testament, and he couldnt bear the Jewishness of the new faith. So taken by these presuppositions that he red-penned much of the writings that would become the New Testament.Even so, its interesting to see how those who got it wrong help to point us in the right direction.  Marcions was the first canon of the New Testament.  The church responded, and it helped to clarify what the actual New Testament was.Im reminded how easily we get lost when we dont start with the right map.
