Zacchaeus (Short Sketch)

Jesus and his friends then moved on into Jericho. The people followed him as he picked up pace and soon many of the people from the town had gathered around him in such large crowds that it was difficult to get through. One man in the town was so short he could not see over the heads of the others. He scrambled up into a nearby tree and looked down over the babbling crowds. As he crept along an overhanging branch he slipped round it and found himself hanging right over Jesus, looking down on him and his disciples.

Jesus: Hello! You’re keen!

Zacchaeus: Are you the one they call Jesus?
