The Gospel of Marcion has a really strange construction in Qn 7.28, μείζων γυναικῶν Ἰωάννου. If we simply read it on its face, it says, “A greater one from John’s women.” The following passages in Qn are all about the “sinful woman” (Qn 7.36-50) and then the litany of Jesus’ female followers/patrons (Qn 8.1-3).Read More »
