This site will feature Bible-based articles some days, silly posts and quotes at least twice a week and facts about Jack the Ripper-to begin with.

Background-
The People
Colossians 4-Mentions the same people-“Onessimus, our faithful and beloved brother, who is one of your number.” vs 9
“Aristarchus, my fellow prisoner, sends you his greetings; and also Barnabas’ cousin, Mark (about whom you received instructions; if he comes to you, welcome him)”
In Acts 15, Paul and Barnabas get into an argument over taking Mark, because he abandoned them on the first trip.
“Epaphras,… sends his greetings, always laboring earnestly for you in his prayers” vs 12
“Luke, the beloved physician, sends his greetings, as does Demas” vs14
“Say to Archippus, ‘Take heed to the ministry,” vs 17
-Masters/Slaves
-Imprisoned
-Wisdom/Speech

The Place-
3 places close to each other

The Timing
Paul’s Imprisonments
Caesarean Acts 24-2 years
1st Roman Acts 28-2 years
Philippians 1 indicates release
2nd Roman II Tim. 4-The letter refers to his imminent execution
Most likely occasion is 1st Roman

Internal Issues- Onessimus’ departure vs 11, 18
