2 Clement shows us the importance of sermons in the early church. Though the author wrongly emphasizes works as a way of earning God's favor, his (at best) careless call for perseverance may have been the result of profound sin among the congregants. This lesson reminds us the promise of God's acceptance only on the righteousness of Christ. We also look at some other early Christian sermons by Clement of Alexandria and Melito of Sardis.
