About the story of Zacchaeus

The story of Jesus and Zacchaeus is told in only one of the Gospel,  Luke 19: 1-10.

In this passage, Zacchaeus is a wealthy, dishonest tax-collector, who is also short. He hears that Jesus will be passing through Jericho and wants to see him - but know that his height will make this difficult.  So Zacchaeus climbs a sycamore tree, where he has an excellent view.   While passing the tree, Jesus sees Zacchaeus, and calls him by name to come down from the tree - and they dine together in Zacchaeus' home.

After this, Zacchaeus has a change of heart, repents for his previous behavior and promises to be make amends.  Jesus comments that the Son of Man has come to seek the lost.
