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.
