What Does The Bible Have To Say About Slavery?

Last week in Bible Study we finished up our review of the book of Colossians. Towards the end of Bible Study last week, we began to transition into the book of Philemon by briefly discussing the relationship between the prison Epistles (Ephesians, Philemon, Colossians, and Philippians).  This week  we will dive head first into the Book of Philemon and attempt to discern what the Word of God has to say to us, His people, concerning slavery.
