Questions 2 & 3 pose a slight problem. Most scholars believe that the authorship of Hebrews is unknown (if it was Paul why didn't he identify himself like he did in every other letter?) The NT has been arranged for centuries with Paul's letters listed longest to shortest. (Little known piece of NT trivia!) Then Hebrews. Since that time the authorship of Hebrews was enough of a question that it was not included with Paul's letters. That would mean we would have to add a number and a name to these two questions.
