WOTD, καθαρισμός

The word of the day is…

καθαρισμός, καθαρισμοῦ, ὁ

Greek, katharismos, katharismou, ho, 1. cleansing, purification, ritual washing

This word is used of the ritual washing performed by the Jews before meals, the washing required of women by the law after childbirth, and the cleansing of the guilt of sin offered by Christ’s sacrifice, as we find it in Hebrews 1.
