(zac kee' uhss) Greek form of Hebrew name meaning, “innocent.” A corrupt tax collector in first-century Jericho (Luke 19:2-9 ). Out of curiosity he went to hear Jesus. Because of his short stature he had to climb a tree to catch a glimpse of the Lord. To his surprise Jesus called him by name to come down and went home with Zacchaeus. There the official believed and was converted. As a result of his newfound faith, he restored with interest the money he had taken illegally.
