    And it was indeed an artifice of the devil to endeavor, by means of such sorcerers, who assumed the name of Christiansto defame the great mystery of godliness by magic art, and through them to make ridiculous the doctrines of the Church concerning the immortality of the soul and the resurrection of the dead. And in the first place, he drove from his house every Christian, thus depriving himself, wretched man, of the prayers which they offered to God in his behalf, which they are accustomed, according to the teaching of their fathers, to offer for all men. For more discussion of these problems, see [Metzger] pp. For this is the name by which a poor man is called among the Hebrews.

    Thus he lay prostrate. The attitude of pagans towards the early Christians was not very amicable. For Constantine, like an all-gracious emperor, giving him evidences of true favor, did not refuse alliance with him, and did not refuse him the illustrious marriage with his sister, but honored him by making him a partaker of the ancestral nobility and the ancient imperial blood, and granted him the right of sharing in the dominion over all as a brother-in-law and co-regent, conferring upon him the government and administration of no less a portion of the Roman provinces than he himself possessed. De Viris Illustribus in Latin. Accessed September 28, These are the things which Isaiah foretold; and which were anciently recorded concerning us in sacred books and it was necessary that we should sometime learn their truthfulness by their fulfillment.

New Eusebius book

And let us always honor him with our mouth who is the second cause of our benefits, the instructor in divine knowledge, the teacher of the true religion, the destroyer of the impious, the slayer of tyrants, the reformer of life, Jesus, the Saviour of us who were in despair.

Among the rejected writings must be reckoned also the Acts of Paul, and the so-called Shepherd, and the Apocalypse of Peter, and in addition to these the extant epistle of Barnabasand the so-called Teachings of the Apostles ; and besides, as I said, the Apocalypse of John, if it seem proper, which some, as I said, reject, but which others class with the accepted books.

The majority of them are known to us only from long portions quoted in Byzantine catena-commentaries. It also decreed that properties confiscated from Christians and the Church should be returned without charge.

In the first of these books he gives the number of the canonical books of the so-called Old Testament. Among the disputed writings, which are nevertheless recognized by many, are extant the so-called epistle of James and that of Jude, also the second epistle of Peterand those that are called the second and third of Johnwhether they belong to the evangelist or to another person of the same name.

In this work Eusebius produced what may be called, at best, a fully documented history of the Christian church, and, at worst, collections of passages from his sources. Chapter 7: The Exemption of the Clergy Copy of an Epistle in which the emperor commands that the rulers of the churches be exempted from all political duties.

More pagan objections to Christianity are then presented. The Epistle of Clement. And we decree still further in regard to the Christians, that their places, in which they were formerly accustomed to assemble, and concerning which in the former letter sent to your devotedness a different command was given, if it appear that any have bought them either from our treasury or from any other person, shall be restored to the said Christians, without demanding money or any other equivalent, with no delay or hesitation.

Then bringing out into the light those who were his friends, who had long before been consecrated to him for life, but in the midst, as it were, of a storm of evils, had been concealed under his shelter, he honored them worthily with the great gifts of the Spirit. The second and third Epistles belong to the seven Antilegomena.

Eusebius was a leader and speaker at important early Church councils and synods. But perhaps it is granted to another, to one only, to be second after him in the same work, namely, to the commander of this army whom the first and great High Priest himself has honored with the second place in this sanctuary, the shepherd of your divine flock who has obtained your people by the allotment and the judgment of the Father, as if he had appointed him his own servant and interpreter, a new Aaron or Melchizedec, made like the Son of God, remaining and continually preserved by him in accordance with the united prayers of all of you.

Of the ten leaves of the MS. The main thesis of this paper is that homoousios came straight from Constantine's Hermetic background.

He devoted his longest chapter, 8, almost exclusively to him.

Eusebius: The Church History (Paperback)

What Josephus did for the Old Testament and Intertestamentary period, Eusebius did for the New Testament era and for the early years of the post-Biblical church history.

His earlier book, Proof of the Gospel, makes the case for Christianity's total fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies. Thus the text of Book One carefully established the chronological framework from which the tables in Book Two derived.

To modern historians, syncretic chronological tables are taken for granted.

Church History

However, it was Eusebius who introduced them initially and accurately in the Chronicle. This was a radical, revolutionary development in Eusebius' day. A New Eusebius is a very helpful book.

It enables the reader to learn the history of the early Church from those who lived at the time. It can also be seen from the above information presented from A New Eusebius that the major doctrines of evangelical churches today, for the most part, parallel the beliefs of the early Church.
