DVD Friends and Heroes Episodes 16-17Version française
The ancient world of the First Century comes alive in this epic animated series from an award-winning team, with major credits on films including Star Wars and The Miracle Maker.
Friends and Heroes follows the adventures of two friends – Macky and Portia – as they fight for justice, and even survival, against the might of the Roman Empire.
In Episode 16, The Ram, 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. Macky receives help from Lucius and is inspired by the story of Paul and the Shipwreck to help those who may seem to be enemies.
In Episode 17, Rescue Strangers, 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 rashly agrees. Portia is angry with him for rejecting her advice in favor of a stranger’s, and Isaac recounts the story of Michal’s rescue of David from King Saul in order to galvinize Portia into action.
