Friends and Heroes: No Turning Back
The Bible comes alive in this epic story from an award-winning team, with major credits on film including Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and The Miracle Maker. Friends and Heroes traces the tale of two friends - Macky and Portia - whose adventures lead them across the ancient world as they fight for justice and even survival against the might of the Roman Empire. In "No Turning Back", with Samuel imprisoned and Caleb injured, Nathan tells a discouraged Macky the story of Elijah and the prophets of Baal to restore his hope. Meanwhile, a torrential rainstorm hits Alexandria, and Samuel tells the story of the first Pentecost. While Sollie plots Samuel's escape, Macky decides to rescue Daniel, the father of Rebecca and Leah, in Jerusalem. Through these experiences and retellings of Bible stories, kids will learn the importance of steadfastness and God's inspiration. In this episode you'll see the Old Testament adventure of Elijah and the prophets of Baal like never before. Experience the New Testament story of the first Pentecost as if you were there!
In No Turning Back, with Samuel imprisoned and Caleb injured, Macky, Portia and the gang devise a scheme to use storm rainwater to flood the palace jail, hoping to force the guards to open the jail doors.

Our friends retell the stories of Elijah and the Prophets of Baal and the First Pentecost, which help them understand the true value of steadfastness and of God’s inspiration.
