The bible gives us the impression Jesus treated women differently than men.

John 20:16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, And saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, And say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, And your Father; and to my God, And your God.

But at Luke 24:39 he encourages his followers to touch to feel that he is not a ghost/spirit.

Jesus then goes even further and implores "doubting Thomas" to:, "Reach hither thy finger, And behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, And thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, But believing John 20:27.

Is there another explanation for Jesus's strange behaviour?

Jewish priest were required to bathe and wash their garments regularly.

"The origins of baptism might be found in the book of Leviticus where the Levite priests were commanded to perform a symbolic cleansing in water before and after performing their priestly duties. Leviticus 16:4 tells us, "He is to put on the sacred linen tunic, With linen undergarments next to his body; he is to tie the linen sash around him and put on the linen turban. These are sacred garments; so he must bathe himself with water before he puts them on. " Scripture also states in Leviticus 16:23-24, "Then Aaron is to go into the Tent of Meeting and take off the linen garments he put on before he entered the Most Holy Place, And he is to leave them there. He shall bathe himself with water in a holy place and put on his regular garments. Then he shall come out and sacrifice the burnt offering for himself and the burnt offering for the people, To make atonement for himself and for the people. "

But Christians had to find a different word for the traditional routine of bathing because Jesus was immersed in water only once which was when John baptized Jesus. Jesus remained an unwashed Jew after that. He even walked on water to avoid coming in contact with water. The word baptism conveys the message it is required only once. Jesus was baptized once therefore he bathe only once in his entire life.

So the reason Jesus did not let Mary touch him in the tomb must be seen in the context of why Mary was there in the first place.

Mark 16:1 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, And Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus" body. 2 Very early on the first day of the week, Just after sunrise, They were on their way to the tomb.

Luke 24:1 On the first day of the week, Very early in the morning, The women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, They did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.

Both verses tell us Mary was there to wash and anoint Jesus because he was hastily put in the tomb unwashed the day before to avoid the Sabbath. Now that the Sabbath was over they went to wash and anoint his body. But we know Jesus avoided water all his life except at his baptism and even after his resurrection his phobia of water never ceased. Jesus asked Mary not to wash or touch him which put in context is consistent with his phobia of water.

Jesus instead showed his preference to be probed by men washed or unwashed.

Mary Magdalene was trying to embrace and cling and hold on to Yahashua

She wanted to hold on to him and embrace him and take him and assist / help him as a victim of violence and torture who was in pain and needed assistance.

And Mary Magdalene wanted to take time to lead Yahashua around to his friends and family members.

But Yahashua had things to do and things to do and did not want to be grabbed and held onto and embraced -

Joh 20:17" Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, And say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, And your Father; and to my God, And your God. "
18" Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, And that he had spoken these things unto her. "

But Jesus was lying to Mary just to drive her away because he did not want a woman to hug or touch him. His ascension only happened 40 days after his resurrection.

"Ascension, In Christian belief, The ascent of Jesus Christ into heaven on the 40th day after his Resurrection (Easter being reckoned as the first day). The Feast of the Ascension ranks with Christmas, Easter, And Pentecost in the universality of its observance among Christians. "
