Howdy -

In writing a short paper for seminary, I'm a bit stuck on how to write a certain Greek phrase--the key "one incarnate nature of God the Word"--is the phrase spelled, "μία φύσις τοῦ θεοῦ λóγου σεσαρκωμένη," or μία φύσις τοῦ θεοῦ λóγου σεσαρχωμένη"

I'm a stickler for language, so any help you'd be able to give would be appreciate.

the second in St. Maximos:

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Hi!  Christ is Risen!

In writing a short paper for seminary, I'm a bit stuck on how to write a certain Greek phrase--the key "one incarnate nature of God the Word"--is the phrase spelled, "μία φύσις τοῦ θεοῦ λóγου σεσαρκωμένη," or μία φύσις τοῦ θεοῦ λóγου σεσαρχωμένη"

Well, the Fathers were sticklers for language, so you're in good company.  It is σεσαρκωμένη, from σάρξ, σαρκός - flesh (used here for incarnate).

It's hard to see, but if you zoom in on Google's scan, you'll see the search engine just misidentifies the κ as a χ. It's a pretty low quality scan. Anyway, that Migne edition of St. John says σεσαρκωμένη, as it should.
