Luke 18.35 – 19:10 The Blind Beggar & Zacchaeus

February 11, 2018

Entering Jericho and on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus meets a Blind Beggar and a Tax Collector named Zacchaeus. One is the poorest and the other the richest, one oppressed, the other an oppressor, both are outside of the community, both want to see Jesus. Jesus stops for both of them and offers them his transforming grace and love and both of them are restored. Why do these two See Jesus when so many others refuse to see or are unable to see who he is? And what do these encounters tell us about how we can See and experience Jesus too?
