Zacchaeus is probably best known for the Sunday school song about him. Because he was short, he couldn’t see Jesus among the crowds. So he climbed up a sycamore tree for a better view. Jesus calls him down from the tree and goes to his house to speak with him.
Zacchaeus was a tax collector. In Jesus’ day, these men were notorious cheats. When he repents, Zaccheaus declares that he will pay back four times what he has cheated everyone.
