Bullfrogs & Butterflies

  1. 1. Luke 19:1-10 Bullfrogs & Butterflies
  2. 2. Luke 19:1-10 1. Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. 2. And behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus. He was a chief tax collector and was rich. 3. And he was seeking to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was short in stature. 4. So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was about to pass that way. 5. And when Jesus came to that place, he looked up and said to him,
  3. 3. “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for I must stay at your house today.” 6. So he hurried and came down & received him joyfully. 7. And when they saw it, they all grumbled saying “He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.” 8. And Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor. And if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I will restore it fourfold.” 9. And Jesus said to him “Today salvation has come to this house, since he is also a son of Abraham. 10. For the Son of Man came to seek and save the lost.”
