Bible Names A-G: Clement
Clement in Easton's Bible Dictionary
mild, a Christian of Philippi, Paul's "fellow-labourer,"
name he mentions as "in the book of life" (Phil. 4:3).
It was an
opinion of ancient writers that he was the Clement of
name is well known in church history, and that he was
of an Epistle to the Corinthians, the only known
which is appended to the Alexandrian Codex, now in the
Museum. It is of some historical interest, and has
given rise to
much discussion among critics. It makes distinct
Paul's First Epistle to the Corinthians.
Clement in Fausset's Bible Dictionary
Paul's fellow helper at Philippi, whom Origen (Commentary,
John 1:29) identifies with the Clement, the apostolical father
afterward bishop of Rome, whose epistle to the Corinthian
church (part of the Alexandrius manuscript of Greek Old and
New Testament) is extant. Philippi being closely connected
with Rome, as a Roman colony, might easily have furnished a,
bishop to the Roman church.
Clement in Hitchcock's Bible Names
mild; good; merciful
Clement in Naves Topical Bible
A disciple at Philippi
Clement in Smiths Bible Dictionary
(mild, merciful), Phm 4:3 a fellow laborer of St. Paul when he
was at Philippi. (A.D. 57.) It was generally believed in the
ancient Church that this Clement was identical with the bishop
of Rome who afterwards became so celebrated.
Clement in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
klem'-ent (Klemes, "mild"): A fellow-worker with Paul at
Philippi, mentioned with especial commendation in Phil 4:3.
The name being common, no inference can be drawn from this
statement as to any identity with the author of the Epistle to
the Corinthians published under this name, who was also the
third bishop of Rome. The truth of this supposition ("it
cannot be called a tradition," Donaldson, The Apostolical
Fathers, 120), although found in Origen, Eusebius, Epiphanius
and Jerome, can neither be proved nor disproved. Even Roman
Catholic authorities dispute it (article "Clement," Catholic
Cyclopaedia, IV, 13). The remoteness between the two in time
and place is against it; "a wholly uncritical view"
(Cruttwell, Literary History of Early Christianity, 31).
H. E. Jacobs
Clement Scripture - Philippians 4:3
And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women
which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and
[with] other my fellowlabourers, whose names [are] in the book
