I have often considered that period of time. If you've had a chance to read Strobel's book, "The Case For Christ", it covers some good information about the very early church not bathed in all the rumors of the period. He uses some solid experts that reinforce how people talked about and wrote about Christ. Even though there was rampant illiteracy, there still was solid evangelism apart from Catholic Dogma. There has always been a strong chain of truth protected by the hand of God throughout the ages.

Also, most Jewish children were educated so those that became saved also built a strong belief in education.
