Acts:6-9 grammar help

Xai/rete pai=dej,

Holy Zeus! It's around 4am Saturday morning here in Montreal -- bad case of insomnia induced by Greek Grammar stress! So please bare with me if I'm a little incorent. :?

I have some questions about sentence patterns -- i.e., subordinate participial clauses, etc. -- and just plain grammar. For instance,

I Corinthians help...

Hi,

I am wondering if anyone can help me with this verse? I don't need them both translated or anything like that. What I am trying to establish is the Real Presence in the communion theology. I have been told that the Greek word that was used for remembrance actually meant to re-live.



I Cor 11: 23-27

For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the ...

Galatians 3, 28

In Galatians 3, 28 Paul says

ouk eni arshn kai thelu

I have two questions:
1) Is there a continual aspect in the verb eni ?
2) more importantly why did Paul not use anthropos and gunh instead of arshn and thelu ? What shade of meaning is added by the use of these terms?

Gratias ago vobis propter responsiones vestras futuras.

ginomai, gegona, gegenomhn: overlapping forms?

Is ginomai a deponent verb?

In that case how can it have a form both for perfect active gegona
and a form for perfect passive/middle gegenhmai? Is not just one form enough? The same seems to happen with the aorist with egenomhn and egenhthen.

Could anyone translate these forms so that I can see the difference between them or provide meaningful examples?

Another question is: why do I encounter ginomai in Mounce and gignomai in ...

This is from Ray Summer's Essentials of New Testament Greek. (Lesson 3, 17:1:12-Page 21)


oi( a0/ggeloi ginw/skousi qa/naton kai\ dida/skousin a)nqrw/pouj lo/goij.


In this sentence would the first accusative affect the second verb?

The simple - The messengers know death and teach men (with) words.

Alternative - The messengers know death and teach men (death) (with) words.

A Sort of ellipsis - death being the topic of the teaching.
