Jun. 18. The Disciples Are Told of the Resurrection

Mk. 16:10, 11; Lk. 24:9-11; Jn. 20:18

When Mary and the other women with her told the apostles about seeing the risen Jesus, they did not believe her. “Their words seemed to them like idle tales.”

Even after being with Christ for two and three years, the apostles were not expecting His resurrection. They had not been the threat to steal His body that the Jewish leaders had feared when they asked for a guard for His tomb.
