Title: 'Seek His Kingdom'
Subtitle: Q 12,22b-31, God’s Providence, and Adamic Wisdom

Abstract :
In Q 12,22b-31, a kingdom-saying functions as the climax to a sapiential collection, but it is not self-evident that this message is sapiential. Q 12,31 uses traditional wisdom structures and forms to advance what appears to be an 'eschatological' message. In this study, I re-examine the nature of the wisdom in Q 12,22b-31 and argue that the theme of God’s providence can be understood in relation to eschatological ideals of the restoration of creation and a 'Son of God'/Adamic christology.
