78. the gospel of Marcion 'betrays assimilation' to Matthew 18:6

" Clement and Marcion (with the Old Latin) will then confirm each other, as showing that even at this early date the two passages, Matt. xxvi. 24 and Matt, xviii. 6 (Luke xvii. 2), had already begun to be combined. [Sanday, Gospels in the Second Century p. 68]
Marcion's Gospel (as witnessed by Tertullian's Adversus Marcionem H.35) appears to have conflated the two sayings as in the Clement passage [D. A. Hagner, 'The Sayings of Jesus in the Apostolic Fathers and Justin Martyr', in Gospel Perspectives p. 237]
