The man up a tree

A tax collector called Zaccheus wanted to see Jesus but he was so small he couldn’t see anything over the crowd. He decided to climb up a sycamore tree so that he could see Jesus coming.

As Jesus passed by the tree he looked up and spoke to Zacchaeus and said He was coming to Zacchaeus’ house. The people in the crowd didn’t like that because Zaccheus stole money from the people when he was collecting taxes.

After Zacchaeus had met with Jesus he completely changed, gave half his money to the poor and paid back anyone he had cheated four times the amount.

Jesus said “Today salvation has come to this house”.
