Do Not Be Alarmed. He Has Been Raised.
The apostles hid in the upper room. Despite what they were told, they did not believe that Jesus would be resurrected. The three women at the tomb were there to lay him to rest, but were told to not be afraid. The resurrection is the most important event in Christianity. With this belief, those that were initially in fear would proclaim His word and most would eventually be tortured and die because of it.
