The book called Luke in the Bible, was written by a Gentile believer named Luke, who was a close associate of the Apostle Paul. He set out to carefully investigate the truth concerning Jesus Christ, using the eyewitness accounts of those who were with and knew Jesus and His ministry. His intent in writing this Gospel was so that his readers would know the truth regarding Jesus and what they have been taught concerning Him. It is our hope in studying this Gospel, that we too would better understand the truth concerning Jesus, so that we may better know Him and make Him known to others.
Last Sunday, we saw how a blind man named Bartimaeus was given sight by Jesus. We learned from him how he clearly saw Jesus through the eyes of faith even while he was still blind. That took place on the road to Jericho. What we will see this morning, is another man in Jericho, who was equally desperate as Bartimaeus, and was intent on seeing Jesus. We will learn of a man named Zacchaeus, and his life-changing encounter with Jesus.
