Mark, I would call this a predicate accusative. Some refer to p. a. as
instances where a transitive verb has two "objects" in the accusative case. I
think that the accusative with EIS with a verb to be is also a predicate
accusative. See also ESOMAI hUMIN EIS PATERA (2 Cor. 6:18) or ESONTAI hOI DUO
EIS SARKA MIAN (Matt. 19:5)
