Lesson Review – Luke 19:1-10 – Jesus and Zacchaeus


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied Luke 19:1-10 – Jesus and Zacchaeus.

This is lesson 29 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 107 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 29 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

Jesus came to seek and save the lost.

The Lesson In A Sentence

After meeting Jesus, Zacchaeus, a tax collector with no friends, was changed from the inside out.

Questions For You Kids

Why was Zacchaeus in a tree?

He wanted to see Jesus, but he was too short. So, he climbed up so he could see Jesus.

What did Jesus do as he was walking through the crowd?

He walked right up to the tree and called Zacchaeus by name. Jesus told him that he wanted to go to Zacchaeus’ house to eat with him.

Why were people upset about this?

Zacchaeus was a tax collector and he sometimes stole money from people. They didn’t like that Jesus was going to this sinners house.

What happened to Zacchaeus after he met Jesus?

Zacchaeus said he’d give away half his money and give back even more than he had stolen. He did this not so that Jesus would be his friend, but because Jesus had become his friend. Jesus changed his heart.

Does Jesus still change hearts?

Yes! Jesus changes hearts every day. (Parents, use this as an opportunity to tell your kids how Jesus has changed your heart!)

Praying Together

Take a moment to pray together. Thank God for his Word and for how Jesus sought out Zacchaeus and saved him. Ask God to do the same thing for you and your child(ren) and that your heart would change because of meeting Jesus.
