The Road of Reconciliation
A Study in the Book of Philemon
Anyone redeemed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ has experienced a miracle and has become reconciled to God. But how does this reconciliation between God and man extend to others? How does our faith transform our relationships with our spiritual brothers and sisters, including those who might seem very different from us?
In this tour through the apostle Paul’s epistle to the slave owner Philemon, Alistair Begg shows how Paul encouraged Philemon to put faith into action and be reconciled with his runaway slave, Onesimus. Although the two men came from very different social classes, Paul asked them to do what would otherwise be impossible: to reunite in their new fellowship in the same community of faith. When we follow Paul, Philemon, and Onesimus along the road to reconciliation, we see the transforming power of the Gospel at work for the glory of God.
