Run, Onesimus, Run!

The book of Philemon details the story of Onesimus, a runaway slave.  His owner, Philemon, was most likely a wealthy man as he was able to afford to own slaves and his house was large enough for the church to meet in it.  In Paul’s letter to Philemon, he had nothing but praise and good things to say about this wealthy man.

So why did Onesimus run away?  If Philemon was a generous and godly man, what prompted Onesimus to flee?

I would like to hear your thoughts before I add mine.  It’s a short book so it won’t take you long to read it.
