Another Pope besides Peter mentioned in the Bible !?! Looks like it :)
Its Pope St. Clement mentioned in Phillipians 4:3
"And I entreat thee also, my sincere companion, help those women who have laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement and the rest of my fellow labourers, whose names are in the book of life." (Phil 4:3)
The Haydock Biblical commentary says that most likely this Clement is the 4th Pope after Peter, Linus, and Cletus
"With Clement. S. Jerom, Estius, and some others, believe that this Clement was the fourth pope that governed the Church, after SS. Linus and Cletus" (Haydock, G. L. (1859); Php 4:3)
The Book of Saints, 1921, affirms this but makes the assertion that Clement might have been before Cletus as Pontiff.
"CLEMENT (St.) Pope, M. (Nov. 23)(1st cent.) A Roman by birth, converted to Christianity either by St. Peter or by St. Paul. He accompanied the latter, who styles him “his fellow-labourer” (Phil. 4:3), on some of his missionary journeys. He followed (or perhaps preceded) St. Cletus in St. Peter’s Chair, and governed the Church for about ten years."
Not sure why I find this discovery exciting. . . But I do! The Scriptures are AWESOME!
