Wholeness

The Greek word «soteria» which has been translated as «saving» in reality means something else. The root of this word is «so-», i.e. «whole, holistic». Correspondingly, the meaning of the word «Soter», that has been translated and known to us as «Savior», initially meant «The one that grants wholeness».
