JESUS MEETS ZACCHAEUS
How do you think Jesus knew Zacchaeus’s name? What else do you think he knew about Zacchaeus? What does Jesus know about you? What would you talk about with Jesus if he came to stay at your house? Would you welcome him gladly?
What must it have been like to see Zacchaeus up the tree? Do you think this was normal for chief tax-collectors, (and otherwise wealthy people)? Why do you think he was so desperate to see Jesus?
What do you think made Zacchaeus give half his possessions to the poor? How rich would you have to be to give away half of your possessions? What challenges you about this?
What do you make of the Jesus statement, “this man too is a son of Abraham?” What does it mean/imply? In what ways are Christians, “sons of Abraham”?
How does verse 10 match the life of Jesus? Describe how Jesus saved the lost. (Who were the lost?) Who does Jesus save today? (How are people “lost” today?) What does this mean for our own discipleship?
