Episode 16 - The Ram - View Trailer
The Romans are bringing in a huge battering ram to use against the walled city of Jerusalem. The zealots in the city draw strength from the story of Elijah, Ahab and Naboth's Vineyard, and Macky receives help from Lucius who is inspired by the Bible story of Paul and the Shipwreck, to help those who may seem to be enemies.
Episode 17 - Rescue Strangers - View Trailer
It seems Macky may be getting a little full of himself. Isaac retells the story of Paul and Barnabas who objected to being treated as gods in Lystra but, later, when a stranger named Tamar urges him to attempt a risky mission, Macky readily agrees. Portia is angry with him for rejecting her advice in favor of a stranger's, and Isaac recounts the Bible story of Michal's rescue of David from King Saul in order to galvanize Portia into action
