Children’s Bible Program – Level 1: NT Lesson 19 “Zacchaeus”

Featured Passage: Luke 19


Most everywhere Jesus went, huge crowds of people followed Him. They wanted to hear Him speak and see the wonderful miracles that He performed. Many of the people who wanted to see Jesus were poor, sick, or considered to be sinners. One day, a man named Zacchaeus wanted to see Jesus. The problem was, he was very short and there were so many people crowding around Jesus that Zacchaeus couldn’t see Him. Zacchaeus saw there was a tree near the path where Jesus was going to walk, so he had an idea.



  1. What did Zacchaeus do for a living?
  2. What did Zacchaeus decide to do so he could see Jesus? 
  3. How did it happen that Jesus went to Zacchaeus’ home? Why do you think He decided to go there?
  4. What was the crowd’s attitude when Jesus said He was going to visit Zacchaeus? 
  5. What did Zacchaeus tell Jesus he was going to do? 
  6. Why do you think Jesus associated with those who were not considered righteous (Mark 2:17, Luke 19:10)?
