Mormon Women Project Lesson 19
Thanks to Marshall McDonald for the bumper music.
Jared, outstanding job as always!
Jesus says to Zacheus, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he too is a son of Abraham. 10For the Son of Man came to seek out and to save the lost.” Jesus generally seems to prejudge the rich, such as in the edict discussed in one of the last lessons about it being easier to fit a camel through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into heaven. Is this the only recorded example of Jesus speaking kindly of a rich person or perhaps suggesting that this rich person can be saved?
