    I think it is interesting the boldness of Paul. vs 19: "I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides." On one hand he is saying he will repay Onesimus debt, yet he reminds Philemon, you owe me.

    Genesis 6 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. . Gal 5:17

    Hi Denise; the words Paul uses are spiritual; like when he told the Corinthians, "I have begotten you..." He was NOT speaking carnally, but spiritually; just as the Apostles and Saints from earlier times are called The Church Fathers. The human is but the vessel through which the Spirit does the thing in spirit. Look at 1 Peter 1:3. The term "Born Again" is more accurately - "Born From Above."
  • Denise
    Yes Onesimus was the son of Paul.He explained that he begot him of his own bowels that meant Paul's body and it happened when he was in bonds.Paul was in prison when he and a woman made Onesimus.He never mentioned the woman but we all know how babies are made.Man and Woman Jesus is the Son Of God.And Also There Is God The Father Jesus Christ The Son And The Holy Ghost.3 in one.
