People express surprise when I share that [Luke’s recounting of Zacchaeus] is one of my favorite stories about disability justice; often I get quizzical looks and curious questions. I have had different types of disabilities my entire life, and I find that not only do I relate well to Zacchaeus and other “unclean” figures in the Bible, but I also find that my relationship with Jesus and my call on my faith path follows the patterns in these stories.
