Acts 22:5

New Testament • Re: Acts 22:5 εν ϊερουσαλημ ϊνα τειμωρηθωσιν

At least for certain types of verbs, the future ptc is the ‘normal’ way, in literary classical Gk,of expressing purpose. From when I was taught Gk many years ago I remember this as a sort of default setting, as in
ὡρμησαντο ἐπι το τειχισμα ἐπιθησομενοι – they rushed towards the fortification so as to attack it
