Philemon, A Video Study
The letter to Philemon brings a bold call for forgiveness and unity as the brotherhood of all believers. This letter, the shortest book in the Bible, speaks powerfully to us today toward issues like equality, unity, and what conversion to Christ does for us all. Christ forgave us everything and welcomed us as brothers and sisters in the Lord, now the choice of action is ours.
Philemon, A Video Study features scholar David E. Garland teaching through the book of Philemon in 4 engaging and challenging lessons. A companion to Garland's Colossians, Philemon commentary in the NIV Application Commentary series, these lessons explore links between the Bible and our own times that reveal Philemon's enduring relevance for our twenty-first-century lives.
Philemon, A Video Study is part of the Zondervan Beyond the Basics Video Series, which is dedicated to bringing expert teaching from world's best biblical scholars and theologians directly to interested learners.
