Clement of Rome on the Resurrection

Clement on the Resurrection
posted by John-Mark (Vocab)

This Sunday night on Backpack Radio, we are reading and then discussing the earliest (post-New Testament) Christian work. Here is a sample of the work we'll be looking at; it comes from the pen of Clement, a Roman Christian, circa 96 AD.

Ch 27:
In the Hope of the Resurrection, Let Us Cleave to the Omnipotent and Omniscient God.
Having then this hope, let our souls be bound to Him who is faithful in His promises, and just in His judgments. He who has commanded us not to lie, shall much more Himself not lie; for nothing is impossible with God, except to lie. (Comp. Tit_1:2; Heb_6:18) Let His faith therefore be stirred up again within us, and let us consider that all things are nigh unto Him.

By the word of His might He established all things, and by His word He can overthrow them. “Who shall say unto Him, What hast thou done? or, Who shall resist the power of His strength?” (Wis. 12:12, Wis. 11:22) When and as He pleases He will do all things, and none of the things determined by Him shall pass away. (Comp. Mat_24:35)

All things are open before Him, and nothing can be hidden from His counsel. “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament showeth His handy-work. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge. And there are no words or speeches of which the voices are not heard.” (Psa_19:1-3)
