Step back from the text a little.
If I say, "There's a group of guys at XYZ, corp; they all work at home", it is
technically a bit awkward. However, English speakers are very comfortable
with it. For proper agreement, you would expect "at homes", or perhaps, "in
the homes." Technically correct, but, ironically, a bit awkward, like a
sentence with an assumed subject and verb. ;-)
EN OIKWi was just the Greek way of saying "at home".
Every Christian library should have a plaque which states:
"There is one book which explains all these."
