Moses and the Prophets

When Jesus rose from the dead, why did he not reveal himself to those who disbelieved and rejected him? He knew their heart; they didn't want to believe. They were content with the way their life was and didn't want to have to change. Jesus revealed the nature in which God deals with unbelievers in the parable of Lazarus: "If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead." He was telling them in advance that he knew that in his rising from the dead, they would still not believe.
