Matthew 28:1-18: Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. […] So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word. And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, “Rejoice!” So they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell My brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me.” […] Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

Mark 16:9-14: Now when He rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons. She went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned and wept. And when they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe. After that, He appeared in another form to two of them as they walked and went into the country. And they went and told it to the rest, but they did not believe them either. Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen.
Luke 24:15-36: So it was, while they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus Himself drew near and went with them. But their eyes were restrained, so that they did not know Him. […] So they rose up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven and those who were with them gathered together, saying, “The Lord is risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!” And they told about the things that had happened on the road, and how He was known to them in the breaking of bread. Now as they said these things, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, “Peace to you.”
John 20:14-21:1: Now when she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” […] Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. […] Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. […] And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” […] After these things Jesus showed Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and in this way He showed Himself:
1 Corinthians 15:5-8: and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.

Matthew says that Jesus appeared to two women then eleven apostles, but Mark says that Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene then two people then Peter then eleven apostles, Luke says that Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene then ten apostles then eleven apostles twice, and First Corinthians say that Jesus appeared to Cephas then twelve apostles then 500 brethren then James then all the apostles then Paul.

Contradictions:
1. 2 women, 11 apostles != Mary Magdalene, 2 people, Peter, 11 apostles.
2. 2 women, 11 apostles != Mary Magdalene, 10 apostles, 11 apostles, 11 apostles.
3. 2 women, 11 apostles != Cephas, 12 apostles, 500 brethren, James, all the apostles, Paul.
