Zacchaeus

Luke 19:1-10

Zacchaeus was not very tall. He was also not very well liked, since he became rich by collecting taxes. When Zacchaeus heard that Jesus was coming, he climbed a tree to see him. Jesus said that he would stay at Zacchaeus' house. The people were upset, but Zacchaeus promised to give back all that he had taken dishonestly.

The Bible Story Adventure Game

This game takes place in the walled city of Jericho as Jesus is passing through. Children begin the game just outside the city with the task of finding Zacchaeus at his home.

Upon finding Zacchaeus, children hear him say, "I want to go see Jesus." They must follow Zacchaeus as he runs to the place where Jesus is speaking to a crowd. Kids watch a cinema of Luke 19:1-4, where they see Zacchaeus jumping up and down trying to see Jesus over the crowd.

Children must then search for Zacchaeus. They can find him up in a sycamore tree. As gamers watch a cinema of Luke 19:5-10, Jesus walks up to the sycamore tree, looks at Zacchaeus, and says "Zacchaeus, hurry and come down; for I must stay at your house today." Children see Zacchaeus quickly jump down from the tree. They hear the people grumble and Zacchaeus tell Jesus that he will change his ways.

Children are then told to go find Jesus and Zacchaeus at Zacchaeus' house. Upon finding them, kids are instructed to help Zacchaeus pay back those he cheated, as well as give money to the poor. Children take the moneybags from Zacchaeus' table and then begin their search for five people who are in need. Kids find these people throughout Jericho. Some say, "Zacchaeus cheated me!" Others say "I am poor and in need of money." After helping Zacchaeus distribute all five of the moneybags, children must find the Faith Focus before entering into the Bonus Round.

In addition to helping Zacchaeus, children are challenged to help other people. One woman needs to get bananas out of a tree. There is also a man who needs help rebuilding a wall, and a woman who needs to stomp grapes to get juice.
