Epistle to Philemon

General Information

The Epistle to Philemon, the 18th book of the New Testament of the Bible, is Saint Paul's eloquent appeal on behalf of a runaway slave, Onesimus, whom he had converted to Christianity. The letter, which was probably written during Paul's Ephesian imprisonment in AD 56 or during his Roman imprisonment 5 years later, shows the depth of his Christian humaneness. In it he asks Philemon - a wealthy Christian of Colossae whom he had converted - for Onesimus's quiet return to his former station or, in another interpretation, for his complete freedom to become an evangelist.
