Non-biblical reference to Peter & Paul 95AD

Authentic non-biblical reference to Peter and Paul’s martyrdom.

Bishop Clement’s Letter 95AD to the Corinthian Church.

Chapter 5: “… Let us set before our eyes the good apostles. There was
Peter, who, because of unrighteous jealousy, endured not one or two but many trials, and thus having given his testimony went to his appointed place of glory. Because of jealousy and strife Paul by his example pointed out the way to the prize for patient durance. After he had been seven time in chains, had been driven into exile, had been stoned, and had preached in the East and in the West, he won the genuine glory for his faith… he thus departed from the world and went to the holy place, having become an outstanding example of patient endurance.”
