Description: Paul deals with the final issue in his appeal to Philemon by dealing with Onesimus’ outstanding debt. Paul is willing that the debt be written in his name and in that act, we see elements of the Gospel.
Description: Paul doesn’t command Philemon as an Apostle but rather appeals to him out of Christian love and the Gospel. Paul’s greeting and salutation support his letter, confident of the outworking of the Gospel in the life of Philemon for the benefit of Onesimus and the church.
Description: As an introduction to the book of Philemon, we will explore what the Scriptures say about slavery in the Old Testament under the Mosaic Law, in the New Testament under Roman Law, and how those systems of slavery differed to that of the American South. Finally, we will look at how the Gospel offers good news to the slavery from sin.
