17 From that time Jesus began to preach, crying out, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." [Jesus said further: "Thus it is written that the Christ would suffer and rise from the dead the third day, that repentance and release from bondage of sins (remission) should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem." Luke 24:46-47.]
|Luke 13:3,24:47 |
3 I tell you, no. But unless you repent, all of you will also perish.1 [From the Word of the Lord within: "Ephesians 5:5-6—this is the void of the earth, made perfectly clear: 'For of this you can be sure, that no sexually immoral, or impure, or covetous person (who is an idolater), has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words. For because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient.' Eph 5:5-6." "Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame." 1 Cor 15:34. "These times of ignorance God has overlooked; but now he commands all men everywhere to repent," Acts 17:30.]
47 And that repentance and release from bondage of sins [remission]1 should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
