Episode 24 - Desperate Measures

In Episode 24, Desperate Measures, the zealots decide to kidnap General Tiberius to try to speed-up the negotiations with the Romans.  Macky isn’t sure if this is the right thing to do, and recalls the story of Solomon’s wisdom with a baby, as he considers his decision.

Later, inside the Roman camp, Macky gets a nasty surprise when he discovers Amikam’s real plan, and when he refuses to go along with it, a fight starts. In the confusion, Macky is captured by the Romans. Lucius tells Portia the story of Paul’s appeal to Caesar, but hears something she didn’t know about Macky which spoils her plan to rescue him.
