comment Which of Paul's letters does Peter refer to in 2 Peter 3:15?
The idea that 2-Peter might be two letters is an interesting one, deserving of a question of it's own, but given that chapter 1 contains an introduction and chapter 3 an obvious 'signing off section', I'm not sure it's going to be easy to support? Do you know of any manuscript evidence that might back it up (eg manuscripts containing only chs 1,2 or just 3)?

comment Which of Paul's letters does Peter refer to in 2 Peter 3:15?
Very useful indeed, thanks. One interesting side issue (at least to me) is the indication that this letter was indeed written to a specific church or group at all, despite the lack of a specified recipient at the beginning.

comment What did Jesus mean by “be perfect” in the Sermon on the Mount?
I came across this answer today for the first time and it seemed to me very similar to my logic on this answer, do you agree?

comment Why is the fact that the Muratorian Fragment included Luke in its canon considered an external evidence for Luke's authorship?

@fdb although I've converted your answer to a comment here, it would form the basis of an excellent answer on the new question I've posted here specifically about the "This is attested by the early heretic Marcion" part of the quote from this commentary.

added emphasis indicating that the mention of Marcion is incidental and the question is about the Muratorian Fragment

comment not wishing that “any” should perish from 2 Peter 3:9
interesting question, especially because of the "you" in "is patient with you" in that verse, who does that refer to?

comment Is God male and female?
You might be interested to read this answer on a closely related question. The question seems clearly on-topic to me, but it may be close enough to the one I linked to be considered a duplicate.

comment What does John 8:57 mean by “ Jesus wasn't yet 50 years old but he already saw Abraham”?
This is either too obvious to leave open or it's unclear what you are asking?

comment What is the third heaven that Paul mentions in 2 Corinthians 12:2?
This is an interesting answer, but it's lacking in a crucial dimension: you have told us 'what' you think, but not 'why' you think it, which is really what this site is all about.
