In Luke, after Jesus predicts the passion to the twelve, the narrator says:
KAI AUTOI OUDEN TOUTWN SUNHKAN KAI HN TO RHMA TOUTO KEKPUMMENON AP' AUTWN
KAI OUK EGINWSKON TA LEGOMENA (18:34)
Could EGINWSKON be a conative imperfect?
I would also think that the KAIs are used in such a way that co-ordination
is semantically subordination (I can't think of the technical name for that
at the moment). Does this seem correct?
If my two hunches are plausbile, I would tentatively translate this passage
as follows: "But none of these things made any sense to them, for [the
meaning of] his statement was being kept hidden from them--and yet they
were not even bothering to try to understand what was being said."
