lived in Jericho. His job was to collect taxes. He was very rich.
Lots of people did not like Zacchaeus.

Zacchaeus wanted to see Jesus. There was a big crowd of
people.
Zacchaeus was a very short man. He could not see Jesus. So he
climbed into a tree. Then Zacchaeus could see Jesus.

When Jesus came to the tree he stopped. He looked up into the
tree and said,
‘Come down Zacchaeus. I want to come to your house.’

Zacchaeus came down from the tree at once. He took Jesus to his
house. He was very happy and gave Jesus some tea.

Lots of people were cross. They said,
‘Jesus has gone to have tea with a bad man.’

But Zacchaeus said to Jesus,
‘I am going to give half of everything I have to poor people. I have
taken too much money from some people. I will give them back
four times as much.’
