Eusebius relates that Quadratus wrote his apology in order to answer malicious claims meant to harass Christians. It is stated that this defense was both sound in doctrine and revealed Quadratus’ knowledge of the situation. Then Eusebius quotes a sentence from Quadratus’ apology: The deeds of our Saviour were always before you, for they were true miracles; those that were healed, those that were raised from the dead, who were seen, not only when healed and when raised, but were always present. They remained living a long time, not only whilst our Lord was on earth, but likewise when he had left the earth. So that some of them have also lived to our own times.^8 This brief quotation from Quadratus’ apology reports several important items concerning Jesus’ miracles. (1)The facticity of Jesus’ miracles could be checked by interested persons, since they were done publicly.
