I so love the Bible stories here. This was engaging and well done, I was anxious for him, and happy at the same time. THanks for a wonderful tale.

I really like your attentions to detail in this...the fact that the disciple Matthew had also been a tax collector...and that Rome didn't care how much he (Zacchaeus) collected/stole from the people. And I like this analysis of Zacchaeus, (it's perfect). "As I grew older, instead of climbing trees, I chose to climb the social ladder." You've done very well writing this entry based on the Biblical story.
Nicely done. I like your attention to detail.

Oh, sweet. What a great character profile on Zacheaus. Good writing.

I really enjoyed this retelling of a familiar story. I especially like the references to Zaccheus' mother and the final paragraph.
