This is possibly one of the most divergent portions of a gospel Harmony. You can see from the spread of the scattered segments from Robertson’s Harmony that the four gospels share little in common over this period of the post resurrection story. Other divergences are most often because one gospel writer includes a different story or pericope while the other three “stick to the shared oral script”. In this case they are still all talking about what happened after the resurrection, yet the stories diverge markedly. It is most interesting.
Pay particular attention to Luke’s short segment (Luke 24:9-12). There are a number of noteworthy elements. Take note also of the other Gospel writers accounts to see what is worthy to add from the others stories. I don’t intend to comment on everything in this section. Again there is too much detail for that. But there are some differences which are worthy of comment. Look carefully too at reconstructing the chronology of how all this goes together and take time to colour the segments as usual using the colour scheme which is standard for us in Gems.
