In our discussions we learned some things about Zacchaeus by observing the story: he was short, wealthy, he held a 'chief' position and had a bad reputation (a 'sinner'). But he urgently wanted to see Jesus and so was willing to sacrifice his dignity by running AND climbing up a tree. We also learned some things about Jesus: He knows all things (knew Zacchaeus by name; picked him out of the crowd etc.), He cared about people whom others despised, and He 'came to seek and save the lost'. Further, we learned some things about 'salvation'. This is the term Jesus used to describe what happened to Zacchaeus. We don't have a lot of details in the description but we do know that he made a 180 degree turn in his life (sometimes known as repentance) - before he took advantage of people for his own gain; now he is giving up everything in order to serve the needs of others. The gospel had radically changed everything about him.
