“And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.”
King James Version (KJV)
19:9 He also is a son of Abraham - A Jew born, and as such has a right to the first offer of salvation.
Lu 19:9 This days is salvation come to this house. Because Zacchaeus has truly repented. Forasmuch as he also is a son of Abraham. Therefore entitled to a place in the kingdom, according to the narrow Jewish ideas, but also now shown to be a spiritual son of Abraham, born not of the flesh, but of the spirit (Ga 3:7).
