Iver, in Ignatius's Epistle to the Magnesians 15.1 we have:
ERRWSQE EN OMONOIAi QEOU KEKTHMENOI ADIAKRITON PNEUMA, hOS ESTIN IHSOUS
But we have the same dilemma: Is hOS attracted to the gender of IHSOUS
CRISTOS? I, of course, would say yes.
Contrast this with 2 Clem 14.4:
hO TOIOUTOS OUN OU METALHYETAI TOU PNEUMATOS, hO ESTIN hO CRISTOS.
