Lessons on love and forgiveness from a short book in the Bible

BibleFor the past couple of weeks, I’ve posted a series of articles from the Book of Philemon.

So, first question you are probably asking: What is Philemon and why did you write that many posts about it?  Philemon is probably a seldom used book in worship services or sermon preparation.  It’s the shortest of Paul’s letters and is written while he is prison (he is assisted by Timothy).

Yet, this short letter gives us a glimpse into the gospel and into themes of forgiveness and reconiliation.  It’s a letter written to Philemon, a friend and fellow believer, on behalf of Onesimus, a slave who ran away from Philemon.

The following are the links to the entire series:
