The translations consistently render Mt 28:17b, hOI DE EDISTASAN, as:

but some doubted.

This seems to suggest this group may be distinct from the aforementioned
group of 
those who AUTON PROSKUNHSAN, or at least be a subset of that group, but
certainly
not equal to it.

Does the construction hOI DE EDISTASAN suggest or imply that the two
groups
are not necessarily the same?  The only other use of the word in
Matthew's Gospel
is in 14:31 where Peter who did worship the Lord was also rebuked for his
doubt.  Is it likely that the disciples after the resurrection worshipped
Christ, yet
also doubted and this is the background for the subsequent words of
Christ?
