comment Which of Paul's letters were written to strangers?
@ScottS: Assuming it was written to Ephasus and that Acts is historically accurate about Paul's visit there, yes you're right. I tried to stay on the much safer historical grounds of what Paul wrote about the churches.

comment What evidence suggests that Paul was not the author of Titus?
There's a good summary at Early Christian Writings. I'll try to write an answer tomorrow.

Note that when Papias says "Hebrew language" he may have meant Aramaic.

comment Which is considered more reliable about Jesus' words, Mark or Q?
Typically scholars consider the earliest sources (Paul, Q, Mark) to be more reliable than later sources. But rather than preferring one of them as the most reliable, scholars often emphasize that what's most reliable are the things attested in more than one of those early sources.

comment Does Paul of Tarsus quote Talmud?
Seems unlikely since the Talmud wasn't written down until several centuries later.

comment “ἐν Ἐφέσῳ” in Ephesians 1:1
This answer does an excellent job of laying out the evidence for the two points of view, but I can't upvote because too much of it is spent on arguing that there's no way to evaluate evidence other than by relying entirely on presuppositions. This is somewhat polemical and not related to the specific question asked.

comment What does “Scripture” in the NT refer to?
I missed when I was going through this before that 1 Timothy 5:18 might be an exception. There the immediate quote is from the Torah, but it's followed by a quote taken from Luke/Matthew/Q.
