Jesus was going through the city of Jericho where a man named Zacchaeus lived. He was a wealthy, very important tax collector. He wanted to see Jesus but he was too short to see above the crowd. – Slide 1
He ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree so he could see Jesus. When Jesus came to that place, He looked up and saw Zacchaeus in the tree. He said to him, ‘Zacchaeus, hurry and come down! I must stay at your house today.’ – Slide 2
Zacchaeus came down quickly. He was pleased to have Jesus in his house. The people watching began to complain, ‘Look at the kind of man Jesus stays with. Zacchaeus is a sinner!’ – Slide 3
But Zacchaeus said to the Lord, ‘I will give half of my money to the poor. If I have cheated anyone, I will pay that person back four times more!’ <br/>Jesus replied, ‘Salvation has come to this house today. I came to find lost people and save them.’ – Slide 4
