Macky sets out to rescue the real Daniel, this time disguised as a Roman noble. Isaac retells the Bible story of Paul and Elymas to underscore the danger of trying to be something you're not, while Macky contrasts the Romans over-abundance and lack of gratitude with his own people's tribulations when he tells Portia the story of Moses and the Miracle Water.
Episode 19 - Unwilling Guests - View Trailer
Toadie convinces General Tiberius to allow him to take hostages from the nearby villages, to be executed if Macky doesn't turn himself in. Macky must go into the heart of the Roman camp once again, to try and stop the executions. Our friends retell the Bible stories of how David spared Saul's life, and Paul, Silas and the earthquake, and learn the importance of mercy and doing right. Details
