Maybe a better answer to your question (whether hUMAS is an indir or
a dir obj) is in Blass-Debrunner-Funk, sec. 152, which says,
"Accusative alternating with or supplanting classical dative is found
in the NT with...(2) EUAGGELIZESQAI TINA (probably followiing the
pattern of EULOGEIN, etc. [sec 151(1)]; Attic dative of person
[Phryn. 266], accusative of thing)..."

In their further notes below on that subtopic, they go on to observe,
"(not in LXX: Helb., Kas. 233) rather often Lk and Acts, also G 1:9
(dat.8), 1P 1:12; tini ti Lk 1:19 etc.; with double acc. A 13:32,
where, however, THN EPAGGELIAN is in anticipation of the hOTI clause.

Other verbs covered in this section, as using same construction, are
(1) "'verbs meaning 'to censure. revile, curse' (following the
pattern of Attic LOIDOIREIN TINA...and UBRIZEIN...)," (3) PARAINEIN
(absolutely A 27:9, acc. 22 after the analogy of PARAKALEIN; Ursing
32), (4) XRHSQAI"

They also cross-refer to their sections 162ff., regarding the
supplantation of the classical genitive by the accusative.

Glad to look it up in Moule's Idiom Book, if you want more. He may
cover it.
