(b) As for John 16:13,
BRWs argument is
"John in his Gospel narrative uses the masculine ekeinos (he) to refer to the neuter, Spirit in John 16:13.
On this reasoning, [Gary R. Hudson] attempts to dismiss the mismatched gender completely apparently failing to note that the beloved Apostle John is specifically employing the masculine demonstrative pronoun ekeinos here to agree with the masculine parakletos, Comforter, in John 16:7. While ekeinos is often placed in apposition to the noun it is intended to modify, it can also be used as a substantive which ought to be clear in this place where the genders would otherwise be mismatched."
