On Holy Saturday the disciples were forced to quietly wait.

Holy Saturday, 3/30/18

With the Jewish way of seeing a day run from sundown to sundown, Holy Saturday ran from 7 P.M Friday to 7 P.M. Saturday, hours during which the Passion Narrative was not notably advanced. By that p.m. The body of Jesus was enclosed and sealed into the tomb of a rich donor known as Joseph of Arimethea.

The limited Sabbath Days' journey of about a thousand yards would not have allowed the disciples time to limit the tomb.

The wonen, while making short excursions to buy oils, remained in one of their homes, preparing spices for anointing the body of Jesus after sundown,

The anxious inactivity of that day tells us their are days
