Abstract Is it a coincidence that the omission of the so-called ‘Western non–interpolations’ from Codex Bezae can be dated to the period when, according to Tertullian, Marcion was editing Luke’s Gospel with a knife? Different citations of Marcion’s version of Luke 24:39 indicate a degree of variation between different versions of Marcion’s gospel and also enable an insight into how he interpreted this verse. A comparison with Lukan tradition found in Ignatius’ Epistle to the Smyrnaeans 3 shows that Marcion did edit Luke in accordance with his docetic agenda, and it is also apparent that Marcion saw Jesus as spirit. The omission of the ‘Western non-interpolations’ brings Luke’s narrative of the Last Supper and resurrection appearances into line with Marcionite Christology and may be the result of Marcionite editing. Luke 24:39 in Codex Bezae could represent a correction of Marcion, either by an Orthodox scribe or by Apelles.
