86. the gospel of Marcion had Matthew 23:8

It is not clear that Marcion and his followers fully rejected all other New Testament writings; Ephraem the Syrian (Song 24. 1) claimed that the followers of Marcion had not rejected Matthew 23:8, and both John 13:34 and 15:19 are quoted by a Marcionite in Dialogue 2.16.20.
