Yeah, that makes sense

In the book of Matthew it says the guard at the tomb of Jesus was paid to tell everyone that the disciples stole Jesus’ body. No other Gospel mentions this. So let me understand, the guard requested by the Jews, who believed the disciples were going to steal Jesus’ body, and assigned by Pilate to guard Jesus’ tomb, claims to have witnessed the disciples stealing Jesus’ body just as the Jews had feared would occur and that Jesus wasn’t in fact resurrected from the dead and Matthew quickly explains that, oh yeah, he was paid to say that.
