Contrary to other cases (centurion, Samaritan woman etc), Evangelist Luke describes in the 19th chapter the meeting of Christ and a well-known – in the negative sense of the phrase – person of that era, Zacchaeus.
Even though his name is not familiar in the Greek language, its case is strong proof that anyone who asks, will be given what they are looking for. He was looking for Christ, but couldn’t meet him because of the crowd that usually encircled Christ, so he decided to climb up a tree, under which Christ was going to pass.
This act of faith and interest was positively appreciated by Christ, who not only spoke to Zaccheaus, but also, in violation of the moral and social rules of that time, stayed at his house. The result of Christ’s visit is described in detail with great interest only by Evangelist Luke.
