History of the Early Church Teacher Manual



Students are invited to continue on from a historical study of the Hebrew people to an investigation of the history of the Church. This was so evidently necessary to Christians of the fourth century that one of their own, Eusebius, the bishop of Caesarea, wrote the first book to recount the struggles and victories of the first followers of Christ. Students can now dedicate an entire year to learning the material those Christians began investigating almost 1,700 years ago.

In this course, Henry Chadwick’s The Early Church is used as the main text. Students are directed to Eusebius’ History of the Church when ancient testimony is appropriate.
