Clement Of Alexandria

AD 215
But to him who had hid the money, entrusted to him to be given out at interest, and had given it back as he had received it, without increase, He said, "Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou oughtest to have given my money to the bankers, and at my coming I should have received mine own. "Wherefore the useless servant "shall be cast into outer darkness." ...

Tertullian of Carthage

AD 220

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
