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 ...

Summer's - Shared Accusative.

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.

I know in ...

Kaire!

"Kai en didaskon to kath' emeran..."

Can anybody tell me what the "to" is doing here? My linear translation gives "daily" as the meaning of "to kath' emeran" but I somehow feel skeptical.

histekei

I was reading the first part of an NT book just for whim. To see how far I can go before I get knocked down. :)
John 1:35

Th=? e)pau/rion pa/lin i(sth/kei )Iwa/nhj kai\ e)k tw=n maqhtw=n au)tou= du/o,

Attic pluperfect, 3rd. sg. of i(/sthmi is ei(sth/kei. Perseus has no morphological link for this occurrence. Is it a common variation in koine?

agios pneuma

"Pneuma" is neuter but modified by a masculine adjective. Was this a deliberate choice of the NT writers? Could they have gone with "agion" or "agie" just as well?

BBG workbook chapter 9 line 14 (second edition)

This line reads as follows; "e)n toi=j lo/goij Daui\d toi=j e)sxa/toij e)sti\n o( a)riqmo\j ui(w=n Leui\ A)po\ ei)kosaetou=j kai\ e)pa/nw
This sentence means something like; "by the last words of David, this is the number of the the sons of Levi, from twenty years old and over."
My question is; I have to supply the pronoun 'this' in order to make sense of this line. Without having the context of this sentence, can I know ...

Comma placement

In Luke 23:43

He replied to him, "Amen, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise."

Could this also be interpreted as, "I say to you today, you will..."

In other words is it more likely that "today" describes when "you will be with me" or when "I say to you".

kai eipen auto, Amen soi lego semeron met emou ese en to paradeiso.
