Luke 19:3 Commentary - Expository Notes with Practical Observations on the New TestamentZaccheus desired to see Jesus, this is a sight that few rich men desired to see; the sight of Caesar's face upon their coin is more pleasing to them, than to see the face of Christ in his ordinances: yet it was not faith, but fancy and curiosity that made Zaccheus climb the sycamore, to see Jesus; but the curiosity of the eye gave occasion to the belief of the heart: he that desires to see Jesus is in the way to enjoy him. It is good to be near the place where Christ is, whatever principles bring us there.
