    Why did Zacchaeus climb a tree to see Jesus?

    Could he have met Legions wife and family after he came home or others whom Jesus had influenced through his Earthly ministry?

    The Bible says that Zacchaeus was a short man; he could not see Jesus because there were so many people in the crowds and they were obviously taller than he was.  But, he was determined.  So he devised a plan, that if he was to climb a tree beside the road, he would be able to see over all those that were taller than he was.  Oh, if people today had that same ambition and determination...
