In The Gospel Accord to Luke, the women in this gospel do not flee from the tomb and tell no one,   
as in Mark Chapter 16 Verse 8. They return and tell the disciples about their experience.   
The initial reaction to the testimony of the women is disbelief.

The Gospel According to John     
Chapter 10 Verses 8-9     
Then the other disciple (John) also went in, the one who had arrived at the tomb first,   
and he saw and believed. For they did not yet understand the scripture that he (Jesus) had to rise from the dead.

the scriptures; that he appeared to Kephas, then to the Twelve.   
 
Kephas refers to Simon Peter.

The Fourth Sunday of Easter is traditionally called "Good Shepherd Sunday".     
This name comes from the Gospel passage, taken from the tenth chapter of John.
