Philemon and Colossians were both written and delivered at the same time to the same city. Philemon was a wealthy businessman who had many servants. He came to Christ through the ministry of Paul. His unbelieving slave, Onesimus, had run away from Colosse and arrived in Rome where he met Paul and was converted to faith in Christ.
Of his own free will, Onesimus decided to return to Colosse and face the consequences of his actions. Paul was deeply involved with those he ministered to and it can be seen how concerned he was over this situation. So Paul wrote this to send with Onesimus testifying of the slave’s sincerity and it was the master’s duty to receive him as a brother, not a slave. It’s a short but deeply affectionate letter.
