This commentary expounds Philemon in light of its setting in the Greco-Roman world and its theological purpose. It probes the specific circumstances under which Paul wrote the letter, and who Philemon was and his position within the Christian community. In this Epistle, the apostle addresses a crisis in the church. He speaks to the relationship between a congregation and its pastor through all the problems, sorrows, adventures and joys that attend pastoral ministry.
