These book pictures were illustrated for “BibleRhymes’ Zacchaeus,” by Don Cassity.
Bible verses in Luke, that come right before the story of Zacchaeus, help make it clear why Jesus drew crowds.
Luke 18: 35-43 (KJV)
And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the wayside begging: (36) And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant. (37) And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by. (38) And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me. (39) And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou son of David, have mercy on me. (40) And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he was come near, he asked him, (41) Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight. (42) And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.
