In this article, the story of the conversion of Zacchaeus in Luke 19:1-10 is studied against the background of Nigerian society. The importance of Zacchaeus' story lies in the fact that it remains a paradigm of how wealthy Christians are to make use of their wealth. His example will be advanced for emulation by many a Nigerian wealthy Christian as a way of wealth redistribution.
