You might be surprised to hear that there is a book in the Bible called Philemon. It is a rather short one. You might have brushed right over it a time or two and not even realized it.
Despite its small size, the book is quite colossal, theologically speaking. It instructs us on forgiveness and does so in a unique and practical way. And while it does this, it gently teaches on matters of equality, fellowship, edification and more. Only 25 verses long, it packs 25 chapters worth of divine guidance for us all.
In this book, we will unpack these divinities so that we can think and behave more like our Lord, who is a forgiving God (Ex. 34:6-7). Technically, this book is called a “commentary” on Philemon; however, it has been written in a way that is unlike typical commentaries, which often read like textbooks, focus on individual passages, and have a choppy flow.
The flow of this book is fluid, transitioning from point to point, like topical books do. However, in this book all of the points are posited by scripture. This is a commentary for those who don’t like commentaries. My hope is that you enjoy both the richness of Biblical exposition and the ease of reading, all at the same time.
