Yes, but, the text says that the 11 are the only ones in the narrative frame. Do these OI DE refer to a group who are antithetical to the 11 and also outside this narrative frame? Either the doubters are a subset of the 11 or why doesnlt Matthew use ETEROI or some similar marker to point outside this narrative frame?

I think that the hOI DE is "others" in antithesis to 18:16 hOI DE hENDEKA;
of course the DE there is simply a continuative particle, but it certainly
would appear that the hOI DE as subject to EDISTASAN must indicate a group
antithetical to the Eleven.
