​Since repentance was the 1st thing that both John the baptist and Jesus said, when they started their ministries, we have chosen this same word to show you how to do a word study (all you will be doing is reading the verse where repentance is found, shown at first, then followed by parentheses, that tell you the full context or full puzzle piece). One cannot read just the verse to get to the truth, but must read the verse in light of its full context.

Next we suggest that you write the verse exactly as shown in the Bible in the space provided and if there are a few facts that you might pick up, you can make a note of, but be careful to be as accurate as a reporter who is covering a news story and does not try to be prejudiced or prejudge. To put it another way, it's best to be open minded to God, so we might learn what is in His heart and mind. 

Please fill in the 1st page, you can make a copy of it from your computer, then if you would like, tell me what you came up with. You can email your sheet to me with your conclusions:

There is much more going on in the Greek than we care to bring out at this time, but as we go along, you'll see how exact this is and all the facts that you can get out are amazing!! There will be more pages coming, but we'll do them one at a time for now.

One last thought, this is the study of only one Greek word, and you'll be comparing apples with apples so to speak. The word repentance comes from 2 Greek words combined together or called a compound word. They are meta which is to change and nous the mind. So you'll be reading about the 1st thing God requires us to do and that is to change our mind.

Please notice every place you see imper. (in red), that the word is in the imperative mood, meaning that it is a command. And if you believe that God is speaking to you in that particular instance, you, my friend, are commanded to repent.
