Koinonia

Paul’s use of koinonia in Philemon is a way of describing mutual identification. To be in koinonia with one another is to be mutually identified with that person. It means sharing in sorrow and joy; fellowshipping in biblical truth. For Paul, if Philemon understands the full consequences of this fellowship, (this sharing) then he will receive Onesimus with joy.
