Daily Gospel Reading – Luke 19:1-10

Jesus and Zacchaeus

19 Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. 2 A man was there named Zacchaeus who wasjesus_calling_zacchaeus a chief tax collector, and he was rich. 3 He tried to see who Jesus was, but was not able from the crowd, because he was little in stature. 4 So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was to pass that way.

5 When Jesus came to the vicinity, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for today I must remain at your house.” 6 So he hurried and came down, and received Him joyfully.

7 When they saw it, they all murmured, saying, “He has gone to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.”

8 But Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, I give half of my possessions to the poor. And if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I will repay him four times as much.”

9 Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
