Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol VIII:
Pseudo-Clementine Literature.: Chapter I

Early Church Fathers  Index     

p. 229 Homily II.

Chapter I.—Peter’s Attendants.

Therefore the next day, I Clement, awaking from sleep before dawn, and learning that Peter was astir, and was conversing with his attendants concerning the worship of God (there were sixteen of them, 917 and I have thought good to set forth their names, as I subsequently learned them, that you may also know who they were.  The first of them was Zacchæus, who was once a publican, and Sophonias his brother; Joseph and his foster-brother Michaias; also Thomas and Eliezer the twins; also Æneas and Lazarus the priests; besides also Elisæus, and Benjamin the son of Saphrus; as also Rubilus and Zacharias the builders; and Ananias and Haggæus the Jamminians; and Nicetas and Aquila the friends),—accordingly I went in and saluted him, and at his request sat down.



[With but two exceptions, these names, or their equivalents, occur in Recognitions, iii. 68, where importance is attached to the number twelve.  Comp. also Recognitions, ii. 1.  A comparison of these lists favors the theory of a common documentary basis.—R.]

Next: Chapter II
