Acts 17:30 The repentance here refers to forsaking the polytheistic and idolatrous pagan notions of God and seeking a vital and real relationship with the true God. The message here mirrors what Paul and Barnabas exhorted the idolatrous worshipers at Lystra to do (cf. 14:15). While this is not a CONDITION of eternal life BELIEVING, the unbeliever who repents places himself in the proper sphere to understand the saving message (cf. v 27; 10:35), ie PREPARATION TO BELIEVE.
