When Eusebius wrote his Ecclesiastical History, his vital concern was to record facts before they disappeared, and before eye-witnesses were killed and libraries were burned and destroyed in persecutions by Rome.

Eusebius began this project during the Great Persecution (303–313), finishing and revising it several times between Emperor Constantine’s (306–337) Edict of Toleration (in 312) and his victory over Eastern Emperor Licinius (in 324).
This charge is belied by the fact that as the persecution closed Eusebius himself was elected bishop of Caesarea in 313 or 314.
The basis of his successful defense was the Caesarean baptismal formula; Eusebius was exonerated and that creed became the framework for the Nicene Creed.

 Eusebius of Caesarea: Praeparatio Evangelica  (Preparation for the Gospel). Tr. E.H. Gifford (1903) -- Introduction
The prominent position occupied by Eusebius of Caesarea in the Arian controversy and the Council of Nicaea has given rise to so many important treatises on his life and character, that it would be quite superfluous to prefix a formal biography to the present edition of one among his many literary works.
Eusebius was keenly alive both to the ability of the author, and to the dangerous character of his criticism: and there was need as well as opportunity for a new and comprehensive defence of the truth so vehemently attacked.
Fortunately Eusebius, while refuting Porphyry, has given us his own interpretation of the verses, showing at considerable length (102a-108a) that they represent the world as a great animal to which the name of Zeus is applied, his mind being nothing else than the ether.

 Testimonium Flavianum
This passage is quoted by Eusebius in the fourth century: in the Evangelical Demonstration 3.5, in the Ecclesiastical History 1.11, and in the Theophany.
Interestingly, Eusebius' motive for quoting Josephus in the Evangelical Demonstration is precisely to establish that Jesus performed true miracles, not merely to establish the historicity of Jesus.
Eusebius' opponents were not denying that Jesus was crucified by the Roman and Jewish authorities; this was probably a main part of their argument that Jesus was a GOHS.

 Christian CADRE--Josephus and Eusebius
Olson notes that the earliest citation of the TF appears in Eusebius' Demonstratio, in the context of a defence of Jesus as a genuine miracle worker against the charge that he was a wizard and deceiver (3.5.102 f.).
While it is true that Eusebius' citation of the TF occurs in the context of an attempt to argue for the genuineness of Jesus' miracles, it is notable that what he chooses to emphasize from the TF are not the phrases which Olson seems to put so much store by.
Eusebius makes little use at all of the TF in Proof of the Gospel, and he continually overlooks and ignores the "line(s) of argument" that Olson thinks are so amazing.

 Eusebius the Liar?
Eusebius is quoting, in the body of the text, a passage from Plato's Laws, Book II, and the same word is used there; while elsewhere in the PE Book 12 he quotes Plato's Republic, again using this word.
So in a book where Eusebius is proving that the pagans got all their good ideas from the Jews, he lists as one of those good ideas Plato's argument that lying, indeed telling completely false tales, for the benefit of the state is good and even necessary.
Since Eusebius' point is that some people have difficulty understanding some things (a theme already raised in chapter IV, in which Eusebius explains his view of scripture), and so scripture resorts to narrative fiction to help them visualise the abstract, it is not surprising that he ignores this part of the Laws.

Eusebius is the chronicler of many of these problems as well as the physical violence waged against the church from without.
