In the later Koine the perfect and aorist started to decay, fall together
more frequently. This aorist appears to be like a perfect. Since it is also
in a Gospel text one may/should ask if this reflects a Semitic background,
since one Hebrew form covers both aorist and perfect. I haven't checked the
context or parallels for confirmation.
