Help with Chrysostom Quote
- Does anybody have a copy of Chrysostom's Homily 9 on Hebrews in Greek?
I am trying to make a copy of a phrase that I have found in a
17th-century British theology book, quoting the above, but the Greek
print is so stylized that I cannot make out with certainty the letters
of the last word.
The phrase, as best I know to transliterate it, is:
to gar kainous poeisthai tou loutrou monon wsi
which the author paraphrases as "Baptism only makes us new Creatures."
The English text reads, "for to make new is of the laver only."
The last word looks like omega sigma iota, but the first letter is so
swirly that I am not sure. It actually looks superfluous to the
statement to me.
Please reply ASAP if you can help me out.
