There are patristic references to the Gospel of Mark being a Hebrew Gospel.
The references are not clear as to which direction the translation would
have been. I don't have the reference handy, but if you are interested I
can dig it out over the next week.

I am not aware of any other evidence of Hebrew originals for the rest of the
New Testament. Contrary to your forwarded message, most scholars dismiss
the idea of the NT being a translation from Hebrew.
