What Jesus Found in a Tree
and his friends were walking down the street of a large city one day.
Presently they came to a sycamore tree. Here Jesus stopped, and, looking
up, he saw something through the thick leaves. He knew what it was, and he
said, "Zacchaeus, come down."
was a rustle among the leaves, and in a moment a man came sliding down the
tree trunk. This man was Zacchaeus. He was a rich man. He had never seen
Jesus before. But he had heard many things about Jesus, and now he wanted
very much to see him. News had come to the city that Jesus would pass that
way. And Zacchaeus had run out with the other people to catch a glimpse of
him. But Zacchaeus was a very small man. He feared he would not be able to
see Jesus at all. So he had run ahead and climbed the tree, hoping Jesus
would pass that way so he could see him. He must have been very surprised
when Jesus looked into the tree, and called him to come down.
