1 An officer in Judas Maccabeus’s army (2Macc 10:19). 2 A wealthy tax collector in Jericho (Luke 19:1-10). Learning that Jesus was to pass by, he climbed a tree for a better view. Surprisingly, Jesus summoned him and ate with him. Zacchaeus’s promise to contribute to the poor and restore fourfold those wrongfully treated stands in sharp contrast to the response of the rich ruler (Luke 18:18-25).
