I found an entry in BAG, EN,IV,4,a, "ev with dat. stands--a. for the
ordinary dat...." This is followed with some classical and biblical
examples (Gal 1:16, Rom 1:19, I Cor 14:11, Acts 4:12, Lk 2:14).

If I may be allowed a line of interpretation, I think I see this as a
fulfillment of Isa 53:1; 56:1; and Ezek 20:9.
