Matthew 28:7-16

This website has been moved to:

Matthew 28:7-16: And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.” 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.

Mark 16:11: And when they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe.
Luke 24:11: And their words seemed to them like idle tales, and they did not believe them.

Matthew says that the apostles believed the women's account (as shown by their going to Galilee), but Mark and Luke say that the apostles didn't believe the women's account.

You can disbelieve something and still look into it just to make sure.

This is especially likely for a group of people who had lost their leader just a few days earlier.
