The Book of Philemon
|Philemon was a man who lived in Colossae. He was wealthy and
had a house that was big enough for the church to meet in. He
owned slaves. One of his slaves was named Onesimus.
Onesimus escaped and went to Rome. When he was in Rome, he met
Paul. Paul converted him, and he became a Christian. Onesimus
took Paul's letter to Philemon for him. Paul was in prison when he
wrote this letter.
In Paul's letter to Philemon, Paul tells him he appreciates
his faithfulness and that he's praying for him. Paul also asks
him to forgive Onesimus and welcome him back as a free man. Paul
offers to pay for Onesimus if he owes Philemon anything. Paul
tells him that he would like to visit him in Colessae when he gets
out of prison.
