Bible 107 Return to Syllabus

Readings from Philemon

In reading Philemon, note that the name Onesimus means "useful" or "beneficial." Watch for the play on words.

There are no chapter divisions in this short book, so references are given using verses only.

Read the whole short book, but pay especial attention to the following verses:

	11--once useless, now useful
	13-14--Philemon act out of free will
	15-16--ultimate reason for his running away
	19-20--Paul will pay what he owes
	20--some benefit from Philemon
