You do realize that you're eliminating a wide range of scholarship with the a priori assessment that this work is, in fact, allegorical. As such, I fear that there may be gaps in the exegesis and interpretation.

comment Does Theophilus of Antioch's statement have any bearing on interpreting Mathew 5:28?
The link you provided is a truly fascinating rant and has quite a few logical fallacies. I'm posting this as a comment because it's not directly related to the text, but the logical fallacy upon which this is based is painful. The author notes that he's using the "biblical" definition of a few words, but uses Strong's. I'm not against Strong's, but I'm not going to say that it's "inspired" or the only resource available.

comment Would it matter if the ID of 'Auctor' was revealed and who are the potential candidates?
Also, this statement doesn't really follow your logic. "It is also on the ground which I feel it is unlikely anyone wrote it except Paul, who was the deepest Apostle which Peter admits wrote things hard to understand to the Hebrews." Hebrews would be more readily understood by a Jewish audience because of its OT foundations, right? Peter was noting that Paul wrote things that were difficult for Jewish readers to understand. Also, I find Paul as the "deepest" author to be subjective. Ultimately I agree with your answer, I'm just trying to help you shore it up a bit.

As an aside, please feel free to edit my answer if you'd like to have the publisher/publication city in the citation. I have blanke parentheses just for that purpose.

Do you mean "Liberal Theologians" or theologians that have a more liberal bent? I'm pretty sure there are some Evangelical scholars who could argue convincingly for "a woman" as the author (even if they ultimately don't hold her as the author).

Has there been any other significant research or investigation into this topic since the 17th century?

comment Coherence-Based Genealogical Method vs. Local Text-Types Theory
@theosis Splendid answer. As for matters of doctrine and jurisdiction, we're still working those things out. You can drop into chat sometime and weigh in.

comment What are the holy Scriptures that Timothy has known from his youth?
I see your point. I thought that you were proposing that Timothy was in fact under 20 when Paul wrote him
