<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>It looks like Acts has some exceptions to the
genitive absolute rule regarding the grammatical relation between the main
clause and the GA. For example, 21:34 and 28:6 appear not to be strictly GAs.
What about 3:11, which is normally understood as a GA construction? Could not
KRATOUNTOS DE AUTOU refer to the hO LAOS and not to the cripple? The crowd is
the subject of vv 9-10 and of the main clause of v 11. In terms of sense, the
crowd would logically seize Peter and John and run with them into the stoa. That
'makes more sense' than the healed man clinging to them.</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>Or have I misunderstood GAs?</FONT></DIV>
