Luke 19 is the nineteenth chapter of the Gospel of Luke in the New Testament of the Christian Bible. It records Jesus' arrival in Jericho and his meeting with Zacchaeus, a parable and his arrival in Jerusalem. The book containing this chapter is anonymous, but early Christian tradition uniformly affirmed that Luke composed this Gospel as well as the Acts of the Apostles.

Old Testament referencesEdit
Zacchaeus (Greek: Ζακχαῖος, Zakchaios; Hebrew: זכי, "pure", "innocent" ) of Jericho was wealthy, a chief tax collector, mentioned only in the Gospel of Luke. A descendant of Abraham, he was a poster child for Jesus' personal, earthly mission to bring salvation to the lost. Tax collectors were despised as traitors (working for the Roman Empire, not for their Jewish community), and as being corrupt.
Parable of the minasEdit
- Now as they heard these things, He spoke another parable, because He was near Jerusalem and because they thought the kingdom of God would appear immediately.
The journey which Jesus had embarked on "steadfastly" in Luke 9:51 is drawing towards its climax. Hugo Grotius held that "they" (who heard these things) refers to the disciples. Heinrich Meyer argues that "they" were the murmurers of verse 7.
Jesus' entry to JerusalemEdit
As he drew near to the city, Jesus wept, anticipating the destruction of the Temple.Lutheran biblical scholar Johann Bengel contrasts Jesus' reaction with the immediately preceding scene of rejoicing:
- Behold before thee the compassionate King, amidst the very shouts of joy raised by His disciples!
- Jesus weeps over Jerusalem, and yet compels no man by force.
Jesus in the TempleEdit
- [Jesus] Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.
In expelling the dealers from the Temple, Jesus' words draw from both Isaiah 56:7 (a house of prayer for all nations) and Jeremiah 7:11 (a den of thieves). Matthew 21:13  and Mark 11:17 have the same quotations.
- And He was teaching daily in the temple. But the chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people sought to destroy Him.
- and [they] were unable to do anything; for all the people were very attentive to hear Him.
