1. What does Eusebius affirm through Christ?
He affirms various traditional Christian doctrines, that Christ is the son of God sent into the world to redeem mankind and so on. The first pages are full of Old Testament exegesis intended to show that Christ is the messiah.
2. Describe Christian doctrines, according to Eusebius.
Christ's doctrine contains nothing novel or strange and neither does his religion. His initial followers were unusually blessed, as the Scripture taught they would be. And only as of late, in Eusebius's time, have Christians become widely known. Nonetheless, the core Christian doctrines lie implicit in the Old Testament, which is neither new nor odd.
3. When was Christ recorded? How was this affirmed?
Christ was recorded in the census of Augustus's forty-second year as Caesar, twenty-eight years after the conquest of Egypt and the death of Antony and Cleopatra. Quirinius was the Syrian governor. And the Jewish historian Josephus records related details that can be used to affirm these dates.
