“Oldest existing sycamore”
Review of Zaccheus' Tree

Zaccheus' Tree
Reviewed May 30, 2018

The Book of Luke tells the story of Zacchaeus, who climbed a sycamore tree to see Jesus as he entered the city of Jericho. Supposedly this is the tree described in the Scriptures. Even if not, some have claimed that this Jericho tree is the oldest existing sycamore in the world.

This is the tree the rich man climbed to see Jesus. Interesting enough it and the property within are owned by the Russian government.

Our tour did a by the way stop here and we only had 5 minutes but still it was very worth it as it gave us an idea of the story of Zacchaeus and what it would have been like. I had never seen a Sycamore tree before so it was interesting. There were a few paddlers selling dates by the roadside - it was cheap!

This is the tree on which Zacchaeus climbed to get a better view of Christ when he had visited Jericho.Just a stop by to click some pictures is all that is recommended!!

This tree is located in a garden that was built with the cooperation of the Government of Russia with the Palestinians. This garden looks beautiful. In it there is the olive tree called the Zacchaeus tree, reminiscent of the Gospel narratives that tell when Jesus called the publican Zacchaeus to come down from the tree because Jesus wanted to pay a visit to his home. . This tree was hundreds of years old and still looks solid. The leaves are also still looks lush
