"The apostles have preached the Gospel to us from the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ [has done so] from God. Christ, therefore, was sent by God, and the apostles by Christ" ~ Clement of Rome – A.D. 96

"'The people shall be called by a new name, which the Lord shall name them, and shall be a holy people.' This was first fulfilled in Syria; for 'the disciples were called Christians at Antioch,' when Paul and Peter were laying the foundations of the Church" ~ Ignatius
