Book – Six Sentence Story

Zaccheus claimed that the scribes and sinners – err, Pharisees – were better at fleecing the sheep than the average tax collector. He loved ticking people off so much that Yehováh wondered if He would ultimately have to scratch Zaccheus’ name out of the Book of Life.

To get a better view of Yeshua, Zaccheus climbed a tree. To get a better view of Zaccheus, Yeshua told him to get out of that tree so He could stay at his house.

When Zaccheus did, Yehováh was pleased. He watched His Son walk side by side with a tax collector, of all people, both of whom were ticking everyone of self-importance off along the way.


Denise offers the word “book” to be used in this week’s Six Sentence Stories.

I am grateful to Michael Wilson who suggested using Zaccheus in a story. You can read what really happened in Luke 19:1-10.

  1. Good story, Frank. Disturbing the accepted order of things to bring in the new order.
    Incidentally, I learned a new meaning for ‘to tick off’. In British English that means ‘to reprimand’, but now I know there’s a different meaning in the USA.

  2. And, for what it’s worth, I’ll betcha them Pharisees were way thin-skinned if they didn’t think they had overwhelming numbers on their side.
    (Enjoy your posts. Learn something new nearly every week; e.g. Yeshua
