St. Philemon, Who Saw a Slave Become His Brother

Rembrandt, “Saint Paul at His Writing Desk,” ca. 1629

“Paul, a prisoner for Christ Jesus, and Timothy our brother, to Philemon, our beloved and our co-worker, to Apphia our sister, to Archippus our fellow soldier, and to the church at your house. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (Philemon 1–3)
