(n.) A man who has been a slave, and has been set free.
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
FREEDMAN; FREEMAN

fred'-man, fre'-man: The term occurs in 1 Corinthians 7:22 Colossians 3:11, and Revelation 6:15, and represents two slightly different words. In 1 Corinthians 7:22 the word is apeleutheros, "a freeman," one who was born a slave and has received freedom. In this case it refers to spiritual freedom. He that was in bondage to sin has been presented with spiritual freedom by the Lord. In Revelation 6:15 the word is simply eleutheros, "a free man" as opposed to a slave.
