Abstract:
The Theological Relationship Between the Book of Proverbs and Genesis to Kings. By utilizing an intertextual approach that makes use of allusion and typology, this thesis examines how wisdom’s link to creation, as found in the prologue to Proverbs, is paralleled in the salvation historical material of Genesis to Kings. The thesis explores the relationship between the themes of wisdom, creation, building, and provisioning, as understood against the conceptual worldview of the ancient Near East and Israel. In so doing, it becomes clear that the prologue to Proverbs roots human house building and other cultural activities in the divine patterning of creation (cf. Prov. 3:19-20; 24:3-4). The same pattern occurs with respect to wise tabernacle and temple building in Genesis to Kings (cf. Exod. 31:3; 1 Kgs. 7:14).
