I have some questions prompted by this thread.

1) After joining this mailing list, I seem to learn a lot about the middle
voice of Biblical Greek. But I remember that I read some book which
said the force of the middle voice almost disappeared in BG. What is
the rationale for this claim or hypothesis?

2. How does the translation "casting HIS glanace around the room"
incorporate the reflexive meaning of the form?

3. What would the active form PERIBLEYAS be translated?
