Theddus preached Gospel to the sons of Abraham, the Salt of the earth. - 12. How Thaddeus cured the Noble King Abgarus of Edessa who believed in Christ Jesus?-5.
HI, I HAVE GOT THE FULL BOOK OF ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY BY EUSEBIUS:- http://www.ccel.org/ccel/schaff/npnf201.iii.vii.v.html PLEASE STUDY THIS AND IF YOU FIND SOME THING INTERESTING THAT I HAVE NOT DEALT WITH, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. EUSEBIUS SEEMS TO BE HONEST BUT AROUND 325A.D., PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SPIRITUALLY BLINDED AS YOU WILL FIND IN HIS NARRATION. BY THAT TIME THEY HAVE DECLARED CHRIST AND NOT JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS THAT IS NON-SENSE AS CHRIST STAND FOR HIS WORD THAT TOOK THE FLESH IN THE NAME OF JESUS. JESUS DIED AND NOT CHRIST. EUSEBIUS WAS PRESENT WHEN THEY FORMULATED THE NICENE CREED THAT MAKES NO SENSE. I WILL MAKE CORRECTIONS AND PUT HIS TEXT MARKING IT IS CORRUPTED.
20. Abgarus therefore commanded the citizens to assemble early in the morning to hear the preaching of Thaddeus, and afterward he ordered gold and silver to be given him. But he refused to take it, saying, If we have forsaken that which was our own, how shall we take that which is anothers? These things were done in the three hundred and fortieth year.231231 According to the Chronicle of Eusebius (ed. Schoene, II. p. 116) the Edessenes dated their era from the year of Abraham 1706 (B.C. 310), which corresponded with the second year of the one hundred and seventeenth Olympiad (or, according to the Armenian, to the third year of the same Olympiad), the time when Seleucus Nicanor began to rule in Syria. According to this reckoning the 340th year of the Edessenes would correspond with the year of Abraham 2046, the reign of Tiberius 16 (A.D. 30); that is, the second year of the two hundred and second Olympiad (or, according to the Armenian, the third year of the same). According to the Chronicle of Eusebius, Jesus was crucified in the nineteenth year of Tiberius (year of Abraham 2048 = A.D. 32), according to Jeromes version in the eighteenth year (year of Abraham 2047 = A.D. 31). Thus, as compared with these authorities, the 340th year of the Edessenes falls too early. But Tertullian, Lactantius, Augustine, and others put Christs death in 783 U.C., that is in 30 A.D., and this corresponds with the Edessene reckoning as given by Eusebius.
I have inserted them here in their proper place, translated from the Syriac232232 See note 6. literally, and I hope to good purpose.
