Saint Zacchaeus the PublicanArticle

Chief of the publicans in Jericho. He received Jesus into his house with great joy; and despite the temptations of his position he must have been an honest man, for he protested to the Lord: “Behold the half of my goods I give to the poor, and if I have wronged any man of anything, I restore him fourfold.” (Luke 19)
