This problem went away for me when I changed the gherkin jar file in the build path for the project to gherkin-2.12.jar.  Check out the 1 answer to this post in Stack Overflow.

With luck, you should  be able to get gherken-2.12.jar from here:

http://mvnrepository.com/artifact/info.cukes/gherkin/2.12.2
