Dedicated to the writings of Saint Luke.

In order, Luke 1:3

I write this post to ask a question.
Moulton (2517) states I am using:
kathexes is confined to the NT in Lk 1:3, where Blass (Philology of the Gospels, 18 f.) understands it as “referring to the uninterrupted series of a complex narrative.”

I agree that the writings of Saint Luke constitute “A complex narrative.” This is my question.

Since Luke can be shown to have created “a complex narrative” with his numerous chiastic structures, could Luke have intended in using the Greek word, kathexes, to inform most excellent Theophilus that he was in fact using chiastic structures? Did any Greek writer use the Greek word, kathexes, in any way related to chiasmus?
