DIA has a number of uses with the genitive so I would suggest that you submit some text(s) for consideration.
Therefore, O faithful Christian, search for truth, hear truth, 
learn truth, love truth, speak the truth, hold the truth, 
defend the truth till death.
- Jan Hus

Subject: [B-Greek] DIA + Genitive

I'm trying to understand "agency" in Greek. As an example, DIA PISTEWS means 
"though, by faith." But what does that mean exactly? One grammar offers 
this: DIA with genitive expresses secondary or intermediate agency. I'm just 
wanting to get a more precise idea of this.
