Luke 13:
DEF: repent:
G3340 μετανοέωmetanoeo (met-an-o-eh’-o) v.

1. to think differently or afterwards, i.e. reconsider (morally, feel compunction)

[from G3326 and G3539]


lit., “to perceive afterwards” (meta, “after,” implying “change,” noeo, “to perceive;” nous, “the mind, the seat of moral reflection”), in contrast to pronoeo, “to perceive beforehand,” hence signifies “to change one’s mind or purpose,” always, in the NT, involving a change for the better, an amendment, and always, except in Luk 17:3-4, of “repentance” from sin. The word is found in the Synoptic Gospels (in Luke, nine times), in Acts five times, in the Apocalypse twelve times, eight in the messages to the churches, Rev 2:5 (twice), Rev 2:16, Rev 2:21 (twice), RV, “she willeth not to repent” (2nd part); Rev 3:3, Rev 3:19 (the only churches in those chapters which contain no exhortation in this respect are those at Smyrna and Philadelphia); elsewhere only in 2Co 12:21. See also the general Note below.

  1. Ones failure to repent can bring tragic death in ones life before their time. 1-5
  2. The evidence of true repentance is fruitfulness in ones life instead of wasted time on self with no fruit. 6-9
  3. To genuinely keep the sabbath one must keep the full spirit of the sabbath. 10-17
  4. Strive to enter the strait gate because few are saved. 23-30
  5. The stopping of gathering around Christ by religious hierarchies. 31-35
