Uhmm... which 1st century writers are we talking about?
Paul of Tarsus, Ignatius of Antioch, Clement of Rome, The four Gospel authors, Papias of Hierapolis and the writer of the Didache were all 1st
Authors who spanned the first and second centuries were: Polycarp of Smyrna, Justin Martyr, Melito of Sardis, Irenaeus, bishop of Lyon, Origen of
Alexandria, Tatian, Athenagoras of Athens, Polycrates, bishop of Ephesus, Montanus and Tertullian.
Then there are the dodgy ones we are fairly sure weren't the actual authors such as Titus (Roman Emperor).
The list of Christian writers and references to Jesus Christ grows at an increasing rate almost from the foundation of Christianity, as the faith
spread rapidly throughout the world. That much is unarguable.
