Philemon.The apostle in this epistle indulges in some fine paronomasais on the proper names.
Thus Philemon, [Philemon ,] affectionate, or beloved, is "our dearly beloved;" Apphia, ([Apphia from appha,] the affectionate address of a brother or sister, according to Suidas,) is "the beloved sister," as several MSS., Vulgate, and others correctly read; Archippus, ([Archippos ,] the ruler of the horse, for the managing of which heros were anciently famous,) is "our fellow- soldier;" and Onesimus, ([Onesimos ,] useful or profitable,) once unprofitable, is now profitable.and fellow labourer.
 He would not put his request on the ground of his apostleship, lest he might bring in the force of authority, where all that would meet and reflect Christ in the matter must turn on the state and the willing answer of his heart to whom he was appealing in grace. (Philemon by W. Kelly)
 It is a fine picture of the way in which the tenderness and the strength of the love of God, working in the heart, occupies itself with every detail wherein that love might be wounded, or that might be an occasion for its growth and manifestation. (PHILEMON by J.N. Darby)
 It is exceedingly delightful to witness the progress of one, who having received the truth doctrinally, is led to connect it with Jesus in his own soul. (Philemon by J.L. Harris)
 Now I believe that many parts of scripture are neglected or slighted, because they do not appear to bear on doctrinal truth, while they are the exhibition of that very truth in living power. One such part of scripture is the Epistle to Philemon. (Philemon by J.L. Harris)
 In the Lord Jesus personally, we see the whole truth embodied and livingly presented, -He is the truth. In the Apostle we see the blessed result of communion with the truth, and the presentation of the mind of Christ. (Philemon by J.L. Harris)
 In this he showed Philemon two things: first, that he was a sufferer, and not one who had maintained his place in the world by his confession of Christ; secondly, that all the irksomeness of his prison was removed, by his ability to see that men were only the hand of the Lord, so that he was content to be there, for he was the Lord's prisoner. (Philemon by J.L. Harris)
