I came across Acts 6:2 OUK ARESTON ESTIN hHMAS KATALEIYANTAS ...
It sure seems like a Periphrastic Aorist to me. Is there any reason not to
accept it as a periphrastic Aorist? Certainly KATALEIYANTAS directly
complements ESTIN !
A.T. Robertson says there is only one periphrastic aorist in the N.T.
(Robertson's big grammar, p. 375. It is interesting that Robertson footnotes
Blass for the facts on this. But, Blass/DeBrunner seems to include John
18:30 EI MH HN hOUTOS KAKON POIHSAS (p. 180, Sect. 355).
Any help from some experts?
