Wordplay will be the thirteenth CD from ApologetiX, featuring 20 Biblical parodies of classic and modern rock songs. Carrying on a time-honored ApologetiX tradition, we are giving clues as to the contents. Here's this week's clue:
Although the name Jericho evokes images of Joshua, this song's about a guy who was really up a tree -- Zaccheus, a tax collector too short to see Jesus through the crowds when the Lord came to the town of Jericho, so he put aside his pride and climbed up onto the edge of a sycamore branch for a better view. Most people, including Zaccheus (and maybe you, too, had you lived back then) thought Jesus wouldn't want anything to do with a bad tax collector, but the Lord works in mysterious ways -- Jesus looked up and saw Zaccheus and knew his heart's desire, so He called him down by name and invited Himself over to Zaccheus' house for dinner, leaving one repentant sinner dizzy with delight and many unrepentant Pharisees scratching their heads.
