    Genitive Absolute

    I was just reading John Chapter 13 and came across the following, which has two genitive absolutes in succession, which I found to be interesting and a good and efficient use of Koine grammar:

    καὶ δείπνου γινομένου, τοῦ διαβόλου ἤδη βεβληκότος εἰς τὴν καρδίαν ἵνα παραδοῖ αὐτὸν Ἰούδας Σίμωνος Ἰσκαριώτης,
    13:2


    We don't have a similar type of construction in Hebrew, FWIW..

    Latin does something similar, but with the Ablative case.
