<b>The Kingdom of God in Jesus' sayings: An apocalyptic-eschatological or ethical-eschatological concept?</b> <br>Drawing on the insights of Q research, the purpose of this article is to question the traditionally accepted position that the term "Kingdom of God" in Jesus' sayings is to be understand in terms of an apocalyptic-eschatological framework.

This insight is applied to the present-day situation of the church by describing Jesus' view of the Kingdom of God as subversive wisdom which challenges many conventional practices.
