Discussion for Philemon 1

    123, Philemon was the saved master of Onesimus. When Apostle Paul was in prison, he met Onesimus the slave. Onesimus got right with God and became friends in the Lord with Paul. Paul told Philemon that Onesimus is one of us and that Paul will pay his bill. How beautiful is this story. Slaves and Masters were a common thing in the Bible. Praise God for freedom from satan. God bless you ........

    V.2 - Apphia and Archippus were husband and wife; just as Aquila and Pricilla were.
  • Irene123
    People on here need to read more carefully, PRAY beforehand, for Jesus' wisdom it was ONESIMUS , not Philemon, that was the slave.
  • Renee Allen
    Onesimus was Philemon's slave who had run away. Philemon 1:10-14. If you're not sure of the meaning ask GOD to give you wisdom knowledge and understanding of His word! He will. We receive not because we ask not! Have a blessed day! GODS CHILD.

    Anne, bond does not mean from one's bowels.
  • Breeze
    I think shows a great lesson. From how I read the chapter, I think Philemon had no problem receiving his servant back. It makes me wonder if he had been praying for Onesimus to meet someone to lead him to the Lord. How wonderful that the Lord reconnected them through a mutual friend. I hope to have my own Onesimus testimony one day with a long-lost friend.
