CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
1:10 Whom I have begotten in my bonds - The son of my age.
And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice--the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.
1 Corinthians 4:14
I am not writing these things to shame you, but to warn you as my beloved children.
1 Corinthians 4:15
For even if you had ten thousand others to teach you about Christ, you have only one spiritual father. For I became your father in Christ Jesus when I preached the Good News to you.
I am also sending Onesimus, a faithful and beloved brother, one of your own people. He and Tychicus will tell you everything that's happening here.
Onesimus hasn't been of much use to you in the past, but now he is very useful to both of us.
I wanted to keep him here with me while I am in these chains for preaching the Good News, and he would have helped me on your behalf.
3 John 1:4
I could have no greater joy than to hear that my children are following the truth.
