Trivia
Divider
This was the first episode featuring the title Adventures in Odyssey, so as to not alienate fans outside of the United States. Later, the first 22 episodes had the wraparounds changed from Odyssey USA to Adventures in Odyssey as well.
- Shadowpaw

This episode was later remade as "An Act of Mercy".
- Shadowpaw

Along with the title change, this episode marked the first time Chris started signing off as "Chris" rather than "Chris Lansdowne", as she had done in previous episodes.
- Sifo-Dyas

This is the first episode that the show writers dubbed a "parallel parable," an AIO story that parallels a parable in the Bible.
- noname

This episode is the first show where another character (in this case, Tom) does the teaching instead of Whit.
- noname

In response to the post above: I own a lot of the old Odyssey episodes from 1987-1988, and I don't remember Chris ever signing off as Chris Lansdowne. Maybe they had re-recorded them by the time I bought the tapes around 1990 or 1991?
Shadowpaw's Note: I can confirm that Chris did originally sign off as Chris Landsdowne.
