Iver,

You know I am just a woolly brained literary type so please be patient if I
am belaboring the obvious.

Take a look at John 6:45:

KAI ESONTAI PANTES DIDAKTOI QEOU

Looks to me like QEOU is functioning as the semantic agent here. So once
again, what are you saying about the genitive case and semantic roles?

Thanks,

Clay
