There was once a mean tax collector called Zacchaeus who would collect extra money for himself so nobody liked him. One day everyone was excited because Jesus was coming to visit. Zacchaeus wanted to see Jesus but Zacchaeus was a small man so he could not see him. Zacchaeus had a great idea, he could climb up a tree and then he could see Jesus. Jesus saw Zacchaeus up the tree and told him to come down. Jesus said that he wanted to go to Zacchaeus’ house. Some people were angry with Jesus because Zacchaeus was not a good man. When Jesus got to Zacchaeus’ house Zacchaeus was delighted. Zacchaeus said that he would never steal again and that he would pay back the money he took and a bit more. Zacchaeus never stole again.
