Is there anything specific regarding the timing that we can glean from 
the events in Mark 1:41, describing the healing of the leper. The first 
two verbs are aorist, while the verb for speaking is found in the 
present tense. Does it make sense to understand that Jesus was speaking 
at the same time He was extending His hand, which culminated in the 
physical contact with the leper? Or, should one read the present tense 
as occurring after the contact?

kai. splagchnisqei evkteinas he cheira autou hpsato kai legei autw

??? ????????????? ???????? ??? ????? ????? ????? ??? ????? ????

I hope the transliteration is ok, since I could not find anyplace on the 
list page that gives the scheme. Will also include the unicode version 
for those that can read it.
