Most everyone knows that "repentance" means to "have a change of mind; to be sorrowful over one's sins, and a genuine desire to submit to the will of God." I like to describe it as a sinner going about his business, when he "hears Jesus' still, small voice" calling out his name. When he turns to see that it is speaking to him, he sees His nail-pierced hands reach out to him! Realizing that He is the risen Lord, he falls to his knees and worships Him. It is like Saul's meeting with Him as he travelled to Damascus to kill Christians! (Acts 9:1-8).
Remission, on the other hand, is not as well known. It is defined as: forgiveness or pardon, of sins (letting them go as if they had never been committed). The Greek word found in Luke 24:47 is ἄφεσις (aphesis), which is translated "remission" in Matt. 26:28; Mark 1:4; Luke 1:77; 3:3; 24:47; Acts 2:38; 10:43; Heb. 9:22; 10:18. It is translated "forgiveness" in Mark 3:29; Acts 5:31; 13:38; 26:18; Eph. 1:7; Col. 1:14. It is also translated "deliverance" and "liberty" in Luke 4:18.
I highly recommend that you note these references, and read them for yourself; the common idea when "remission" is mentioned, has to do with Christ shedding His blood to cleanse us from sin. For without the shedding of blood, there is no remission." (Heb. 9:22)!
