[B-Greek] KAI IDOU

Hi all.

I am working on the particle construct KAI IDOU in Matthew.  It seems to me 
that it is a temporal marker, making a break between sections.  It could be 
translated "and then..."  Looking through Matthew, it occurs 29 times, only 
3 of which may not fit this concept.

Does anyone know of any studies about this?  I know BDF talks about KAI IDOU 
as a Hebraism, but I have a feeling that is outdated (they themselves point 
out it is found in Homer).  I know that Bock in his commentary on Luke in 
the BEC deals with it a bit, but nothing overly substantial.  Does anyone 
else know of some resources or have some ideas?
