John the Baptist and Jesus Christ both began their ministries with a call to repentance Matt. In the Greek, repentance involves turning away from something metanoeo, G, and metanoia, G That you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. Before we can move on, even to the next foundational principle, we have to repent.
We have to realize that we are flawed, sinful human beings with no right to stand before God. Then, we turn away from dead works and turn to God in faith which is the next foundation listed in Heb.
What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.
But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life. Because Jesus, our Foundation and Cornerstone, has saved us from sin, we can start building with His doctrinal principles.

Repentance from Dead Works
The author endeavors to explain and convince his Jewish audience why the New Covenant is far superior to the Old Covenant. They relied on the sacrificial system and strict law keeping to somehow pay for past sins and justify themselves to God. This wrong concept was difficult to overcome even among converted Jews. They had to be reminded that the concept of justification by law keeping was not possible. The author reinforces the truth that faith in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ is the only way to have our sins forgiven.
Christians can never be justified by any form of works, even good works. Animal sacrifices could never forgive sin or cleanse the conscience. The instruction in the book of Hebrews is not limited to a Jewish audience at the time of the original writing. Dead works precede our conversion and can plague us after conversion.

Repentance from dead works applies to everyone. Repentance is a change of attitude, mind and actions. Those who repent come to a place in life where they recognize their personal sins and understand that Christ died so that those sins can be forgiven. They ask God to forgive those sins and are baptized in water.
Repentance from Dead Works (1 of 7) (First Principles): Summary Notes
This brings us to the topic of works. Works are addressed throughout the New Testament. The Bible speaks of two types of works. One type is godly and acceptable to God; the other type is sinful and unacceptable to God. The words work or works are translated from the Greek word ergon. Godly works are deeds or actions that God accepts.
Such works are the result of faith and putting the 10 Commandments into action in our lives. The book of James defines godly works, the deeds or actions God accepts, as obedience to His law as defined in the Scripture James ; He clearly refers to godly works as living by the 10 Commandments and other godly principles as they are amplified throughout the Bible. Jesus taught His disciples to set a good example by letting their lights shine before all men Matthew
