Here I am with another question.
In John 17:24 we have:
Πάτερ, ὃ δέδωκας μοι, θέλω ἵνα ὅπου εἰμὶ ἐγὼ κακεῖνοι ὦσιν μετ̓ ἐμοῦ,
PATER, hO DEDWKAS MOI, QELW hINA hOPOU EIMI EGW KAKEINOI WSIN MET EMOU,
Why does John use a neuter singular pronoun hO and then refer back to it
with a masculine plural demonstrative KAKEIVOI? Shouldn't the two agree
in gender and number? Is there a rule here I am missing? Is it
possible that ὃ hO represented a collective neuter noun such as ποιμνιον
POMNION, and KAKEINOI the members of that group?
