Zaccheus was ostracized, excluded, and condemned by his own people in his own town. This head tax collector for the Roman government was lost in his wealth. Jesus, in seeking to spend time at Zaccheus’ home, faces some of the same criticism. But as the Kingdom of God comes, this lost son of Abraham is Restored, half of all his wealth is given to the poor to Restore them, and anything he gained by defrauding anyone is Restored times four.
