At the heart of Paul’s epistle to Philemon is a depth of feeling and friendship, along with a story about the grace of God at work in the lives of three very different individuals: the apostle Paul, the slave Onesimus, and his master Philemon. What Paul writes elsewhere about the unifying nature of kinship in Christ, we see him living out through this very personal letter. From this example, Alistair Begg shows us how to live in Christian fellowship with one another.
1Paul, a prisoner for Christ Jesus, and Timothy our brother,
To Philemon our beloved fellow worker
