GNWSIS is a substantive, meaning "knowledge," or "that which is known."
I suppose this would correspond to an active sense and passive sense.

You then asked:

Is there a substitive
>the greek verb oida, like gnosis is for ginwskw?

OIDA comes from an old Greek root VID- ... from which
we get "video." I believe the substantive for OIDA would
be EIDOS. This word is found in the GNT meaning: appearance,
that which strikes the eye.

Finally, you asked:

John never
>used the substitive for ginwskw, is this correct?

I do not have a search engine. I am not aware of his
using GNWSIS, but I can not speak to that.
