Clement

In Bible versions:

Clement: NET AVS NIV NRSV NASB TEV
a person, male

mild; good; merciful

Greek

Strongs #2815: Klhmhv Klemes

Clement = "mild, merciful"

1) a companion of Paul and apparently a member of the church of
Philippi. According to tradition, he is identical with that
Clement who was bishop of Rome towards the close of the first
century.

2815 Klemes klay'-mace

of Latin origin; merciful; Clemes (i.e. Clemens), a
Christian:-Clement.

Clement [EBD]

mild, a Christian of Philippi, Paul's "fellow-labourer," whose 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 Rome whose name is well known in church history, and that he was the author of an Epistle to the Corinthians, the only known manuscript of which is appended to the Alexandrian Codex, now in the British Museum. It is of some historical interest, and has given rise to much discussion among critics. It makes distinct reference to Paul's First Epistle to the Corinthians.

Clement [NAVE]

CLEMENT, a disciple at Philippi, Phil. 4:3.

CLEMENT [SMITH]

(mild, merciful), (Philippians 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 [ISBE]

CLEMENT - 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).
