"This parable is spoken directly in response to Zacchaeus' conversion and the discussion going on amongst the crowd. Because of the healing of Bartimaeus and his friend, the crowd would be even more convinced that Jesus was going to Jerusalem to take control of His kingdom. The necessity of the cross had not yet become evident. Thus, Jesus tells them this parable. This parable, then, is unusual in that its purpose, not its meaning, is given beforehand."
