The Prodigal Slave: A Study in the Letter to Philemon

The Letter to Philemon is often overlooked, which is a shame.  You’d be amazed at the wonderful things that are found in this short letter.  For example:

  • An old gospel preacher, imprisoned because his message got some other religious folks upset.
  • A runaway slave who never wanted to be found, finally coming to the conclusion that he needed to go back.
  • A slave owner who was declared righteous before God.
  • An inspired guilt-trip.
