[B-Greek] Ephesians 2:8 TOUTO

Hello,

If the participle SESWSMENOI were neuter and singular I could see that but
it is tagged as masculine and also plural by Friberg. So Hukel's idea of 
PLOUTOS does seem to me to be a more likely candidate. Interestingly,
Wallace doesn't mention this.

Best Regards,
Harry Jones
