In this lesson, learn about Zacchaeus, a bad guy Jesus chose to spend time with as He traveled around from city to city.

Key Points:

  • Zacchaeus was a wee little man and a wee little man was he. 
  • He climbed up in a sycamore tree for the Lord he wanted to see. 
  • And as the Savior came that way he looked up in the tree. And he said…
  • For I’m going to your house today. For I’m going to your house today. 
  • Jesus came to save people like Zacchaeus. 

Memory Verse:

Luke 19:10 For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.
