Facts About Philemon

Facts-About-Philemon

The Epistle to Philemon is one of apostle Paul’s prison letters, and is also the shortest of all the Pauline epistles. Paul wrote this letter to the slave owner Philemon regarding Onesimus, a slave who had robbed his master and run away from him. Onesimus made it to Rome, where Paul was imprisoned at the time. Onesimus had intended to escape punishment for his crimes but when he heard Paul’s gospel, he became a Christian. Paul addressed this epistle to Philemon as an appeal for him to accept Onesimus not as his slave, but as a brother in Christ.
