49. Philemon Summary Verse

February 15, 2021

In another of Paul's "prison letters" we learn about Christian friendship, fellowship, and forgiveness. The letter was written to Philemon, a friend of Paul's, but he was writing this letter to him on behalf of one of his slave who had run away. This slave, Onesimus, had become a Christian, and so this letter is about Christian love and forgiveness and fellowship with other Christians. Our summary verse is from Philemon 1:4-5: “I thank my God always when I remember you in my prayers, because I hear of your love and of the faith that you have toward the Lord Jesus and for all the saints.” – (ESV)
