Philemon 1:1-25

The return of Onesimous

Why didn't the apostle Paul call for the abolition of slavery? Why did we have to wait 1700 more years before slavery was outlawed in the West? In this pair of talks, Dick examines the subordination ethic in Colossians 3–4 and the example of Onesimus in Philemon.
