comment How did the gospels get their names?
@FrankLuke My guess is that the original version, like Q, was lost... assuming it existed.

The documents for the location and circumstances of John the Evangelist in the late first century are better laid out here then I can explain here.

comment What is Jesus trying to tell us about divisions in the household?
(RSV is generally considered a gold standard in this regard)

comment Can we date Mark without first committing to an interpretation of the Olivet Discourse?
As a note: historically, if someone survived childhood, it was quite probable that the person would make it to 50. 65 was unlikely, but it would not have been unheard of. If we take the Church's tradition into account at all, John the Apostle died at least 60 years after Christ died on the cross.

comment What is the third heaven that Paul mentions in 2 Corinthians 12:2?
Well, if you go to the next paragraph on the Aquinas link he references the trinity as being the supreme, superseding two different interpretations of what the "first" and "second" could be. In Augustine the link shows that he equates "third heaven" and "paradise".

comment What is the referent of “body of Christ” in 1 Corinthians 11:29?
I don't have time to go into detail, but Catholic theologians would more likely have a "both and" for this type of passage.

comment Who believes, is baptized, and is saved in Acts 16?
They are inseparable in my experience. Infant baptism says that baptism's efficacy can hinge on the faith of another. Unfortunately, I can't really speak to the Biblical texts here (as I don't really think that much can be added beyond what you have said), I only know the behavior of the church in early through late antiquity.

comment What exactly was the “death in the pot”
@JonEricson It is my understanding that meal (which is a starch), as an emulsifier, has a tendency to absorb both acids an bases -- things which make things sour and bitter. This is why, for example, you are advised to eat bread after eating spicy food -- it neutralizes the offending acids.

@Amichai But the word in verse 41 is not "death" but evil (רָ ע). It seems then that those who would translate that as death are the ones adding their own interpretation.
