This is a 15 slide, highly animated, powerpoint presentation on Religion – Children’s Bible Stories - Zacchaeus. Each of the slides are editable and can be reordered to adjust to your presentation, if needed. I have also included a slide called “Think about the Story” for student review and questions.
Word was spreading around about the amazing things He was doing and saying. So, when Jesus would visit a new place, big crowds would rush out to see Him. Jesus met a man named Zacchaeus one day on his way to Jericho. He had been traveling around telling stories and performing many miracles.
In the crowd was a man named Zacchaeus, the chief Tax Collector in the area. It was the tax collectors job to collect the right amount of money and make sure it was used fairly. People did not like them because many were dishonest, as was Zacchaeus.
Zacchaeus had heard Jesus was coming into Jericho, being a short person, Zacchaeus couldn't see Jesus because of the crowd. He decided to a sycamore tree to see Jesus. When Jesus passed under the tree, he spotted Zacchaeus he looked up and said to him, "Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today." This shocked the people.
His meeting with Jesus changed his life entirely and made everything right for those he had cheated.
