Two of four 14 minutes video on Luke:

SO THIS IS SO IMPORTANT IN THE MATTER OF FORGIVENESS OF SIN: THE ISSUE OF REPENTANCE:
To be saved you need to be FORGIVEN and to receive it you need to REPENT.
To be saved you need to hear the full presentation of the Gospel.  There is no gospel preaching if there is no talking about repentance.

John was preaching repentance for the forgiveness of sin. We see that in 3:8: The people were coming to him and he was warning them, he was saying to all them “Bring forth fruits in keeping with repentance.”

Jesus said this in Matthew 4:17:” For that time,” that is form the time  that John was imprisoned and no longer preaching, and Jesus began, it says, “from that time Jesus began to preach and say, ‘Repent.’”

In Luke 5 Jesus said, “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to…….repentance.”

Luke 13:3 and 5  Jesus said,”I tell you, unless you repent you will likewise……perish.”
