Jesus Visits Zacchaeus
1He entered Jericho and was passing through.
2There was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich.
3He was trying to see who Jesus was, but he was not able because of the crowd, since he was a short man.
4So running ahead, he climbed up a sycamore tree to see Jesus, since he was about to pass that way.
5When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down because today it is necessary for me to stay at your house.”
6So he quickly came down and welcomed him joyfully.
9 “Today salvation 19:9 Lk 1:77 has come to this house,” Jesus told him, “because he too is a son of Abraham.19:9 Lk 3:8; 13:16; Gl 3:7,29
The Parable of the Ten Minas
12Therefore he said, “A nobleman traveled to a far country to receive for himself authority to be king19:12 Lit to receive for himself a kingdom, or sovereignty, also in v. 15 and then to return.
13He called ten of his servants, gave them ten minas,19:13 = Gk coin worth a hundred drachmas or about a hundred days’ wages and told them, ‘Engage in business until I come back.’
14 “But his subjects hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We don’t want this man to rule over us.’
15 “At his return, having received the authority to be king, he summoned those servants he had given the money to, so that he could find out how much they had made in business.
16The first came forward and said, ‘Master, your mina has earned ten more minas.’
18 “The second came and said, ‘Master, your mina has made five minas.’
19 “So he said to him, ‘You will be over five towns.’
20 “And another came and said, ‘Master, here is your mina. I have kept it safe in a cloth
22 “He told him, ‘I will condemn you by what you have said, you evil servant! If you knew I was a harsh man, collecting what I didn’t deposit and reaping what I didn’t sow,
23why, then, didn’t you put my money in the bank? And when I returned, I would have collected it with interest.’
24So he said to those standing there, ‘Take the mina away from him and give it to the one who has ten minas.’
25 “But they said to him, ‘Master, he has ten minas.’
26 “‘I tell you, that to everyone who has, more will be given; and from the one who does not have, even what he does have will be taken away. 19:26 Mt 13:12; Mk 4:25; Lk 8:18
The Triumphal Entry
28When19:28–44 Mt 21:1–11; Mk 11:1–11 he had said these things, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem.19:28 Lk 9:51
29As he approached Bethphage and Bethany, at the place called the Mount of Olives,19:29 2Sm 15:30; Zch 14:4; Lk 21:37; 22:39 he sent two of the disciples
30and said, “Go into the village ahead of you. As you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, on which no one has ever sat. Untie it and bring it.
31If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it? ’ say this: ‘The Lord needs it.’”
33As they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?”
34“The Lord needs it,” they said.
35Then19:35–38 Jn 12:12–15 they brought it to Jesus, and after throwing their clothes on the colt, they helped Jesus get on it.19:35 Zch 9:9
37Now he came near the path down the Mount of Olives, and the whole crowd of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the miracles they had seen:
Peace in heaven
39Some of the Pharisees from the crowd told him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.”
Jesus’s Love for Jerusalem
42saying, “If you knew19:42 Lk 23:34 this day what would bring peace — but now it is hidden19:42 Lk 8:9–10; 10:21 from your eyes.
43For the days will come on you19:43 Lk 17:22 when your enemies will build a barricade around you, surround you, and hem you in on every side.19:43 Is 29:3; Jr 6:6; Ezk 4:2; Lk 21:20
Cleansing the Temple
45He19:45–48 Mt 21:12–19; Mk 11:12–19; Jn 2:13–17; 8:1–2; 11:45–53 went into the temple and began to throw out those who were selling,19:45 Other mss add and buying in it
47Every day he was teaching19:47 Mt 26:55; Lk 20:1 in the temple. The chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people were looking for a way to kill19:47 Lk 6:11; 11:53–54; 20:19 him,
