This special extra-value, bonus DVD contains THREE new episodes of Macky and his friends' adventures in Jerusalem, completing Series 2!

In Episode 24, Desperate Measures, the zealots decide to kidnap General Tiberius. Through the stories of Solomon’s wisdom with a baby and Paul’s Appeal to Caesar, our friends learn the importance of wisdom and finding a different way.

Toadie on Trial - Episode 25, sees Toadie accusing Portia of being a rebel sympathiser. The stories of Paul’s disappearance and Moses and the Manna from Heaven remind us how important it is to be brave, and that God protects and provides.

Although Hope, Episode 26, begins with Macky still imprisoned and Tiberius launching the final assault on Jerusalem, our friends recall the story of Noah and the Ark and its message of hope! They also hear about Paul speaking to King Agrippa and are reminded that we can trust in God.

DVD 13 contains a brand-new music-video featuring the Friends and Heroes theme tune, “Looking for a Hero” sung by Lauren Waterworth, visualised with extracts from the Series 2 Bible story animations.
