Did everyone that did not get the Good News in time end up in Hell ?
Why are you worrying about those few handfuls of people? What about all those today who don't believe?
The world population back then was tiny. Less than half the world today is Christian, and that is probably at least 10 times the population back then, probably a lot more. Stats anyone?
The crucial part of your post is "all that believed in him". You see, if I do not believe in him, then there must be something wrong with his message. I did not choose not to believe in him.
And it is odd that you ignored all the people who lived and died before Jesus. What about them? If the Jews are to be believed, then a lot of people back then got into heaven.
