I believe that statement to be true. Women’s testimony wasn’t credible at that time, so his message wouldn’t have held water
It is interesting how this lesson that only has used male scholars points out the importance of women only when it is convenient to this lesson.
Based on what has been stated in this course and others that I have taken, women in general were not seen as credible sources or of importance for being sources of information. This perspective is still held by a lot of people around the world, even though it is an incorrect position to take towards women. It would be the death of the story at that time, unless it is just a telling of what happened, to have the women be the first to witness rising from the dead (out of the tomb). Therefore, the manner of the record is true.
