34. 'Marcion cut even more from this section than merely Matthew 15:24 - 26'

from David Inglis - Here Tertullian accuses Marcion of removing anything reporting actual sayings of Jesus, while narrative descriptions of Jesus’ actions are left in place:
“It will, however, be vain for him to deny that Christ uttered in word what He forthwith did partially indeed. For the prophecy about place He at once fulfilled. From heaven straight to the synagogue. As the adage runs: "The business on which we are come, do at once."
“Withdraw all the sayings of my Christ, His acts shall speak.”
