New Testament Directions to Slaves and Masters

Or “New Testament Directions About Slavery”

1 Corinthians 7:21-24

Ephesians 6:5-9

Colossians 3:22-4:1

1 Timothy 6:1-2  –  See also the verses that follow these two.

Titus 2:9-10

Philemon 1:1-25

1 Peter 2:18-25  –  Even though this passage addresses “servants” rather than “slaves,” I included it because its framing and direction are similar to what we see in Ephesians 6:5-9 and Colossians 3:22-41 above; that is, it is framed along with instructions about family order and it directs submission rather than rebellion.
