“And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.”
King James Version (KJV)
19:1 He passed through Jericho - So that Zaccheus must have lived near the end of the town: the tree was in the town itself. And he was rich - These words seem to refer to the discourse in the last chapter, #Lu 18:24 |- 27, particularly to #Lu 18:27|. Zaccheus is a proof, that it is possible by the power of God for even a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Lu 19:1 The Entrance into Jerusalem SUMMARY OF LUKE 19: Zacchaeus the Publican. Parable of the Ten Pounds. The Royal Entry into Jerusalem. Weeping in Jerusalem. Cleansing the Temple. [Jesus] entered and passed through Jericho. He had crossed the Jordan at the ford beyond Jericho, and the road from thence to Jerusalem led through Jericho, "the city of palm trees", the chief city of all eastern Judea. It stood at the mouth of the gap in the mountain rampart, through which the road ascended to Jerusalem, more than 3,000 feet above the plain of Jericho.
