Home | Sandy Tales | Zacchaeus

There was a man with a lot of money. Jesus wanted to meet with this man. What followed was a life-changing meeting.

When Jesus came into his city, tax-collector Zacchaeus wanted to see this Jew he had heard so much about. But because he was just a small man, it was hard for him to see and hear. His solution? He climbed a tree!

There’s a lot going on in the story. Jesus was invited to the house of a hated man. But Jesus says that salvation has come to his house. This is what Jesus was doing all the time: ‘For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost’!

You can read the story in Luke 19!
