Bultmann the Marcionite!

As a follow-up to my post on Bultmann the Heretic, I've located a reference that indicates Bultmann's Marcionite tendencies:

"[T]o the Christian faith the Old Testament is no longer revelation as it has been and still is, for the Jews . . . [it] is not in the true sense God's word."

R. Bultmann, "The Significance of the Old Testament for the Christian Faith," in The Old Testament and Christian Faith, ed. B.W. Anderson (New York, 1963): 31-32.
