the signifance of TOU toward the end of Matt. 2:13

I am currently in a Biblical Greek Class and we were translating
Matthew 2:13. The last portion reads: MELLEI GAR hHRWDHS ZHTEIV TO

What is the significance of the definite article TOU and why does it appear
in the genitive form? This even has the professor a bit stumped at the
moment. Any comments would be appreciated.
