References for Luke 19:1

      2 A man there named Zacchaeus, a ruler among tax collectors, was rich.
      3 He was trying to see who Jesus was, but, being a short man, he couldn't because of the crowd.
      4 So he ran ahead and climbed up a sycamore tree so he could see Jesus, who was about to pass that way.
      5 When Jesus came to that spot, he looked up and said, "Zacchaeus, come down at once. I must stay in your home today."
      6 So Zacchaeus came down at once, happy to welcome Jesus.
