It's a masculine nominative plural present participle.

Thank you.

Now here's a more basic question.

Is it masculine because the soldiers were male, or because Jesus was male?

How about an even more basic question: what verse are you citing???

(The number-gender agreements are a package deal--they together apply to the same constituent that governs them, so, a plural form is not going to agree with a singular Jesus, but the plural soldiers would be OK. )

Thank you.

I was thinking of Luke 22:65.

It's masculine plural to agree with the subject, the ανδρες of v.63. The gender and number of the object are irrelevant.

Mike, in the future, please remember that it's a requirement when discussing Greek from a particular passage to quote that passage.

Thanks...
