Jesus' Message: Repent and turn from your sins


   Matthew 4:17    From that time Jesus began to preach and to 
   say, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." 

   Matthew 9:13    "But go and learn what this means: 'I desire 
   mercy and not sacrifice.' For I did not come to call the 
   righteous, but sinners, to repentance." 

   Matthew 18:11    "For the Son of Man has come to save that 
   which was lost. 

   Matthew 21:28-32    "But what do you think? A man had two sons, 
   and he came to the first and said, 'Son, go, work today in my 
   vineyard.' {29} "He answered and said, 'I will not,' but 
   afterward he regretted it and went. {30} "Then he came to the 
   second and said likewise. And he answered and said, 'I go, 
   sir,' but he did not go. {31} "Which of the two did the will of 
   his father?" They said to Him,  "The first." Jesus said to 
   them, "Assuredly, I say to you that tax collectors and harlots 
   enter the kingdom of God before you. {32} "For John came to you 
   in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him; but 
   tax collectors and harlots believed him; and when you saw it, 
   you did not afterward relent and believe him. 

   Mark 1:14-15    Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to 
   Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, {15} and 
   saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at 
   hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel." 

   Mark 2:17    When Jesus heard it, He said to them, "Those who 
   are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I 
   did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to 
   repentance." 

   Mark 6:12    So they went out and preached that people should 
   repent. 

   Luke 5:32    "I have not come to call the righteous, but 
   sinners, to repentance." 

   Luke 24:46-47    Then He said to them, "Thus it is written, and 
   thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from 
   the dead the third day, {47} "and that repentance and remission 
   of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, 
   beginning at Jerusalem. 

   John 7:7    "The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because 
   I testify of it that its works are evil.
