Luke (Program #41) –  The Ministry of the Man-Savior in His Human Virtues with His Divine Attributes from Galilee to Jerusalem (21)

We’ve all heard of the city of Jericho.  Actually it was a city of curse in the time of Lord Jesus.  One of its inhabitants was a man of curse.  His was Zaccheus, a tax collector actually the chief tax collector and in reality, an extortioner who had gotten rich by taking advantage of the inhabitants of the area.  One day as Jesus was passing through, Zaccheus who climbed in a tree, hoping to get a look at the Savior.  As He came to the place, Jesus looking up, He said to him, “Zaccheus hurry and come down for today I must stay in your house.  And he hurried and came down, and received Him, rejoicing.”  It was a marvelous day as salvation came to the house of Zaccheus.  But the Pharisees, the religious ones who watched it and knew Zaccheus and his past did not share his rejoicing.  We will discover more about this marvelous story of salvation in the gospel of Luke in chapter 19.
