The meaning of the words is the same – they’re just easier to understand!IntroductionClement, a Greek ordained by the Apostle Peter, was the Bishop of the Church in Rome near the end of the first century A.D.

He may also be the same Clement whom the Apostle Paul mentions briefly in Philippians 4:3: “Yes, and I ask you, my true companion, help these women since they have contended at my side in the cause of the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my co-workers, whose names are in the book of life” (NIV).Introduction to the First LetterClement wrote his first letter to the Corinthian Church in about 96 A.D.

He was writing in response to their letter describing a recent church split that had taken place among them. The conflict seems to have involved some of the younger Christian men in Corinth rebelling against the leadership of the legitimate Church officials.Preface to Clement’s SermonClement’s Sermon, most often referred to as Clement’s Second Letter, is the first post-Biblical Christian sermon that we have. It is clear that the document began as a sermon, but may have later circulated as a letter. As he says in chapter 19, “…you’ve heard God’s message in the Scriptures and now I’ve read this encouragement to you…” Clement would originally have read this manuscript out loud during a worship service, but we do not know where he was preaching as the sermon does not contain any kind of introduction or hints as to the setting.

He could have been delivering this sermon to a gathering in Rome or to a group of Christians in another city that he oversaw, such as the church in Corinth. Clement does not appear to be addressing any specific problems in his audience, as he was in his first letter, but simply urges his hearers to whole-hearted repentance.
