    Matthew says nothing like “......that when Mary M. went to the tomb that she was told by an angel that the Messiah had risen and would be seen in Galilee”. Matthew 28:1-8 says that when Mary M. “set out to go have a look at the tomb” God intervened and “THERE SUDDENLY (unexpected) was (this) GREAT EARTHQUAKE”, when “the angel of the Lord descending from heaven approached and hurled away the door-stone from the grave”. So when could the Marys ever have got “to see the tomb”? They could not! ….

    ONLY if that day had been over and the next morning had begun, could “THE ANGEL” have “EXPLAINED to the women” what had happened “On the Sabbath DayBEFORE! Mt1:5a! The angel would not explain or answer the women if the Resurrection was happening; he would only explain it as a PAST occurrence. And the angel explaining on which day specifically and at which time of day actually “there was a great earthquake”, in fact, “Sabbath’s”, “Sabbath’s mid-afternoon”, presupposes it was the past “Sabbath’s Day”, the past “Sabbath’s Day before the First Day of the week”, and not the ongoing day upon which he “explained to the women” how “there was a big earthquake”.

    The angel in Matthew 28informing the women” present THE ACTUAL CIRCUMSTANCE OF THE RESURRECTION, is absolute proof the Resurrection did not happen on the morning of the First Day of the week. The Resurrection occurring while the angel “explained / informed”, or the angel ‘explaining / informing’ while the Resurrection occurred, is absurd. Therefore, exactly as Matthew wrote: “And behold there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descending approaching rolled ….” It is not the action or event of the present, but of the pastSabbath’s” “ANSWERED / EXPLAINED / INFORMED to the women” by “the angel” with dramatic, ‘live’, effect.

    Therefore on Sunday morning
    UNNAMED women—
    not “Mary”, because Jesus had had appeared to her “first” already—
    must have been at the tomb AGAIN,
    where they (not “Mary”) were “informed and told
    by “the angel” outside the grave—
    not inside like in Mark and John and
    not two angels outside the tomb like in Luke—
    that the Messiah had risen and would be seen in Galilee’.
    And Matthew does NOT say that they (not “Mary”)
    ran with great joy’ and that
    THEN the Messiah met them
    (not “they, the Messiah”!)—
    Matthew says that they (not “Mary”)
    ran with great joy” BEFORE the Messiah met them.
    The Messiah according to Matthew was not met by “Mary
    because He already had appeared to her— Jn20:11-17 Mk16:9.

    And what about the guard who were set to keep away specifically “the disciples of his”? The Mary’s would be prevented to get near the tomb.

    No! The women— AFTER Mary already MUST have seen the Lord (Jn20:11-17) and they, the OTHER women, not yet had seen Him, were “told by an angel that the Messiah had risen and would be seen in Galilee”.

    It doesn't matter. You get excited over chippy details that don't matter. The point is the women tried to do something while the cried in their soup.
