The verb 'estin' is found 814 times (according to my program- I have neither
the desire nor the time to count them so I am going to have to trust this
machine). Following are some selected texts which use the verb as a
historical present:

2 Pet 3:4
2 Pet 3:16
1 John 1:8

There are most certainly others.

best to all,
