Philemon

The Book of the Philemon in the bibleThe book of Philemon was written by the Apostle Paul (who wrote about half of the New Testament). It is a letter, or epistle, to Philemon and the church that met in his home.

On the surface, Paul’s letter to Philemon seems more like a personal letter, and its inclusion in the Bible is initially perplexing. However, given that it’s also addressed to the church that met in Philemon’s house, it’s clear that Paul intended it as more than a private communication.

The book of Philemon addresses doing what is right in God‘s eyes and forgoing personal rights and what would be acceptable action from a legal or societal standpoint. The ramifications of this example have wide reaching application.
