>> non-narrative.

I would recommend Steve Runge's book on NT Greek Discourse.

For a solid foundation on the verb, Albert Rijksbaron,
Syntax and Semantics of the Verb in Classical Greek, 3rd ed.
(PS: there is no difference in tense and aspect for Attic and
Koine Greek, same language, same parameters.)

You should probably avoid Porter until trying to study how not
to define tense and aspect, especially with Porter's skewing of
discourse terminology and application in the opposite direction
from the rest of the field of textlinguistics and discourse.
