Someone has stated that this Epistle to Philemon is the best specimen of early deepest Christian correspondence extant. we should always count on this, because it used to be given by way of divine suggestion. And but all of it has to do with a thieving runaway slave named Onesimus, who used to be approximately to come to his former master.
The background at the back of the letter, that's deduced from a cautious learn of the Epistle itself, seems this: within the urban of Colosse dwelt a filthy rich Christian guy by means of the identify of Philemon, potentially the pinnacle of a big loved ones, and prefer many in that day, he had a couple of slaves or bondsmen. Christianity didn't instantly overturn the evil customized of slavery, even if ultimately it used to be the technique of essentially using it out of the complete civilized global. it all started through regulating the relation of grasp and slave, hence bringing untold blessing to these in bondage.
This guy Philemon obviously was once switched over in the course of the ministry of the apostle Paul. the place they met, we're not advised; on no account within the urban of Colosse, simply because in writing the letter to the Colossians, Paul makes it transparent that he had by no means visible the faces of these who shaped the Colossian church. you'll remember that he worked at Ephesus for an extended interval. the celebrity of his preaching and educating was once unfold in a foreign country, and we learn that "all... in Asia heard the word." between those that therefore heard the Gospel message could have been this guy Philemon of Colosse, and so he was once delivered to comprehend CHRIST.
Some years had passed by, and this slave, Onesimus, had run away. obviously prior to going, he had robbed his grasp. along with his ill-gotten earnings he had fled to Rome. How he reached there we don't understand, yet i've got without doubt that upon his arrival he had his fling, and loved to the entire that which had belonged to his grasp. He didn't take GOD into consideration, yet however GOD's eye was once upon him whilst he left his domestic, and it him alongside the adventure from Colosse to Rome. while he reached that fab city, he used to be obviously introduced into touch with the very guy via whom his grasp, Philemon, have been switched over. almost certainly Onesimus was once arrested due to a few additional rascality, and in that approach got here in touch with Paul in criminal, or he could have visited him voluntarily. At any expense GOD, who is aware simply the way to deliver the needy sinner and the messenger of the move jointly, observed to it that Onesimus and Paul met face to face.
