Romans 13:1-5

1Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.

2Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. 4For he is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.

5Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience.

Lincoln, Part 2

“Lincoln, Part 2” is episode #105 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written and directed by Phil Lollar, and originally aired on February 24, 1990.


Jimmy uses the Imagination Station to travel back to the 1800's! He meets up with a fellow named Abraham Lincoln in Washington, D.C., but events soon take a drastic turn!


Jimmy Barclay thinks history is one long snooze and that the Imagination Station isn't nearly as exciting as the Zapazoids video game. But when Whit programs the Station to take Jimmy back to 1865, he soon discovers how wrong he is.

There, he meets a tall, elderly gent who teaches him how to hunt squirrels with a sling. The gent, it turns out, is the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Jimmy experiences firsthand the last days of the Civil War, including the Battle of Richmond, General Lee's surrender to Grant at Appomattox, and the assassination of Honest Abe. Zapazoids better than the Imagination Station? History boring? Not anymore, according to Jimmy Barclay!

This plot section is too short and should be expanded. »

Discussion Questions

  • Why did Jimmy think history is boring?
  • When did the Civil War end? Why was it fought?
  • Why did Whit think Lincoln was the greatest president the U.S. has ever had?



VERSION DIFFERENCE: [view] The broadcast version includes a recap of the previous episode.

  • Some of the music cues for this episode include the iconic tune for the first line of "Dixie".
  • In the scene where Lincoln and Stanton discuss looking over his plan for the reconstruction of the union, in the background you can hear troops singing "When Johnny Comes Marching Home," a popular song during the Civil War.



Jimmy Barclay: John Wilkes Booth. That's why his name is so familiar. He's the man who shot Lincoln!
Bartender: What'd you say boy?
Jimmy Barclay: They're gonna kill Lincoln! I've gotta warn the president!

John Whittaker: You can't change history, Jimmy.
Jimmy Barclay: Then why'd you send me through this?
John Whittaker: So you could do what you're doing now. React to it. Learn from it. And hopefully use that knowledge to try and change the only thing that can be changed: the future.

John Whittaker: Oh, and Jimmy?
Jimmy Barclay: Yes sir?
John Whittaker: You still think Zapazoids is better than the Imagination Station?
Jimmy Barclay: No, I think the Imagination Station is better. But just barely.
