comment What is the scriptural basis for a monarchical episcopate?
Well, that continuation doesn't seem to me to add much to the explanation, however, I think it is worthy to be appended to the quote in your answer.

The Christians from among the Jews and the Christians from among the Gentiles.

comment What is the scriptural basis for a monarchical episcopate?
"It must be noted in passing, that “one shepherd” can be understood concerning a secondary pastor, namely Peter and his successors ... For when the Lord said he has other flocks and other sheep who are not of this fold, he speaks on the Gentile people and the people of the Jews" - Didn't quite get the logic behind this explanation. How does the fact of having two groups can mean that "One Pastor" in that passage of the Bible refers to Peter and his successors and not to the Lord Himself?

comment What is a word to describe someone who is not a Protestant?
@RaphaelRosch - What about the Oriental Orthodoxy churches? Do you want them to be included in or excluded from your term? On one hand, they came into existence long before the term 'Protestantism' was even coined, but on the other hand, they don't belong to Catholicism or Eastern Orthodoxy

comment Why no specific names of false apostles and false brothers in Acts and epistles?
@Flimzy - "Because the authors aren't around to interview, so any answer anyone here can provide is conjecture and opinion" - Following this logic, any question about the meaning of any passage in the Bible will be off-topic then, because any interpretation of any given text can be deemed as a conjecture, and none of the authors are around to tell us what they were really trying to say in this or that passage and, thus, to confirm or disprove our the given interpretations.

@Flimzy - Why asking about the motives of the author of the specific book is off-topic?! I may ask, "What was the main goal of writing the Gospel of John?", ans somebody may answer by leading me to John 20:30-31, "And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book. But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name." So, why would that all be off-topic?!
