CHRIST IS ALWAYS BORN IN OUR SOUL

from the treatise Against Arius & Sabellius, * Translated by Elpenor  * Greek Fonts


ELPENOR EDITIONS IN PRINT

Icon of the Christ and New Testament Reader
LWAYS in all who succeed one another in this world, He is born with them, until the today is called. If ever the today of this world is limited together with the ends, no more is He being born, but having been born once in all, and having seen and judged everyone, alive and dead, He will reign forever with the Father.

ἀεὶ ἐν ἡμῖν Χριστὸς γεννᾶται

Ἀεὶ τοῖς καθεξῆς προϊοῦσιν αὐτὸν συγγεννᾶσθαι ἄχρις οὗ τὸ σήμερον καλεῖται. Εἴ ποτε δὲ τὸ σήμερον τοῦ κόσμου τούτου συμπεριορισθείη τοῖς τέλεσιν οὐκέτι γεννᾶται͵ ἀλλ΄ ἅπαξ τοῖς ἅπασι γεγεννημένος καὶ πάντων κριτὴς καὶ δικαστὴς καθεσθεὶς ζώντων καὶ νεκρῶν εἰς αἰῶνα βασιλεύσει σὺν τῷ πατρί.
