What did the sycamore tree that Zacchaeus climbed look like? What did the job of a tax collector include? How did people feel about tax collectors? What currency was used during that time? How did tax collection then differ from now? This exhibit will not only explore the type of tree and the profession but will allow visitors to explore the diversity in the physical characteristics of people – short/tall, blond-haired/black-haired, etc. And the question may be – ‘What is different about you that Jesus would call you out by name?’
