This week we’re happy to add the final 13 episodes of Friends & Heroes to Minno! In these episodes, Macky and Portia arrive in Rome to continue fighting justice with courage and compassion – but their fight isn’t without obstacles.
If your family has never watched Friends & Heroes, be sure to start at the beginning! Episodes 1-13 are set in Alexandria in 69 AD, Episodes 14-26 are set in Jerusalem in 70 AD, and the latest episodes are set in Rome in 71 AD. Not only does every episode follow Macky and Portia’s journey, but each episode also features two Bible stories! Given the nature of Macky and Portia’s adventures, the series may be scary for your littlest ones, but your elementary-aged kids will love learning what it was like to live in the years just after Jesus came.
Below you’ll find a listing of all 13 new episodes added to Minno as well as the Bible stories covered in each one.
