The New Testament Represents the Only Christian Writings We Have from the 1st Century – Michael J. Kruger

Beginning at 2:12, Michael Kruger states:

“The 27 books of our New Testament are the earliest Christian writings we have, across the board.  There’s no other Christian writing we possess that dates to the 1st Century other than the New Testament.  There’s only one exception to that that comes close, and it’s a book called 1 Clement, which dates at the very end of the 1st Century.  But other than that, if you want to know about 1st-century Christianity the only books you have are the New Testament books.”
