This is a very good retelling of the Bible story. Your writing is very enjoyable to read -- it flows so smoothly, and puts the reader in the scene. Nice job.

Great descriptions and storytelling. I felt like I really got to know this familiar character in a completely different way. Enjoyed this!

I so enjoyed reading this story! I like the emotions and questions which you voice in Zacheaus. This really brought the story to life for me.
This is one of my favorite of all the retellings of Bible stories I have read in the challenges. I love how you expressed the longing of Zacchaeus's heart.

Really nicely done, and I was particularly tickled by the little sentence in the middle about the angels setting the scene.

One of my favorite too. ;) I don't think I have read one from Zacchaeus' POV and you nailed it girl!

Loved it!

Neat! You made us feel his feelings and that added a lot of depth. I loved 'hearing' his thoughts--great job! :-)
God does surprise us sometmes with His choices. He does surpise us, too - that He would chose us! Great job.
Oh, Wow! What a wonderful retelling of this soo familiar Bible story! It has such an engaging energy and drive in it. I was leaning toward Jesus with Zachaeus (sp?) as you were painting the scene. Great job!

I love these stories which make the Bible come to life! Great writing here. Keep up the good work.
Good take on a familiar story.
Great detail in this piece. I enjoyed this very much. You know I'm going to be singing the children's song "Zacchaeus was a Wee Little Man" all day now, don't you? :0)
Very well done.
This is great. Congrats!

To somehow express the way that the infinite God shows up in the life of an ordinary human, conveying His love and attention - is a difficult thing. You have done it well.
Excellent piece! You really captured his personality , Karen! A well-deserved congrats!
