The phrase “my neighbour is all mankind”, is absolutely true Rich. We need to think of Jesus talking to tax collectors and prostitutes, both whom were the outcasts of society in Roman Palestine. These categories are just a metaphor for society’s dejected and yes, as you said ‘When he came down from his perch in the sycamore tree, Zacchaeus saw life not only through his eyes but also through the eyes of Jesus, the Forgiving Victim’. To see through the eyes of another or walk a mile in another’s shoes is a truly life-changing experience which initiates us into a truly Christian life.
