Clement on Ya’akov HaTsadeek #73

Wanna know someone? ..Read their mail! In this program we will open the mail of James the Just. “The Epistle of Clement to James” is only one of a number of Clementine letters that illuminates the role of James the Just among the early believers. Clement, who eventually became bishop of Rome, is reported to have been a disciple of Peter in the first century. In fact, the Roman Church calls Clement “Pope” in succession from Peter. In fact, Clement may be named by Paul in the “New Testament” Epistle to the Philippians 4:3. In the above named epistle of Clement he wrote to James the Just to report his ordination into office by Peter. This and other Clementine epistles gives us a view into the internal government of the early believers that many find quite surprising. In the salutation of Clement to James he calls James “bishop of bishops” and also repeatedly calls James “my lord” – and that is only the start of the surprises! Clearly, Clement reveals a mindset regarding James that is not familiar to believers today. You will likely be astounded by this historical look into the working government of the early believers – particularly as it pertains to James the Just. In the process you will learn how you have been robbed by the Roman Church!
