Jesus' Journey to Jerusalem and the Cross in the Gospel of Luke

Zacchaeus

April 4, 2014   •   Luke 19:1-10

Maybe you remember the children's song that goes, "Zacchaeus was a wee little man, a wee little man was he. He climbed up in a sycamore tree, for the Lord he wanted to see." The high point of the song came when we all repeated Jesus’ command to the wee little man. Wagging our fingers at an imaginary sycamore tree, we shouted in unison, “Zacchaeus, you come down! For I’m going to your house today.” And Zacchaeus always did! Today on Groundwork we're looking at an unexpected encounter with Jesus in Luke 19:1-10 that turned an obscure tax-collector into such a memorable figure and teaches us about the relationship he desires to have with you and me.
