The early Christians took utmost care to maintain the letter, copying it out via hand or even risking their lives with a view to cover it from persecutors. a few neighborhood church buildings stored it for proclamation as a part of the recent testomony.

The Church Fathers indicated that Clement was once an instantaneous disciple of the Saints Peter and Paul. smooth students, even if, referred to as this into query, arguing that he lived and wrote many a long time after the martyrdom of the Apostles.

Msgr. Thomas Herron’s painstaking learn led him to finish that the Epistle to the Corinthians was once composed very early certainly — sooner than 70 A.D. He used to be no longer the 1st student to argue for an early date, yet he used to be the 1st to adopt a radical examine of the problem. His equipment are rigorous. His writing is apparent and sincere. His tone is unassuming.

Nevertheless, his conclusions are beautiful. He argues persuasively for the sooner dates after which proceeds to comic strip out the importance of the early relationship for background, theology, and apologetics.

Clement’s Epistle stands as an early instance of the workout of hierarchical — and Roman — authority within the Church. it's a disciplinary letter addressed with convinced authority to church.
