This brief 25 verse letter contains a touching story of three men: Paul, Philemon and Onesimus. It is an insightful appeal on behalf of Onesimus (Philemon's slave) who ran away and met Paul. In so doing, Onesimus was converted to Jesus Christ and Paul sends him back to Philemon as a brother. Some more thoughts on the letter to Philemon can be found here.
