It says it took place in Galilee, but I thought when Jesus commissioned the Apostles to baptize, that it happened just before the Ascension which took place in Judea. He must have traveled quickly.

St. Matthew doesn't say that He ascended right after that, and He could have told them the same thing twice.

Or Matthew and Mark simply telescoped the events after the resurrection writing an extremely brief summary which Luke later expanded on telling the full story.

I mean, if one book says 'after World War II, General Eisenhower was elected president' and then immediately begins talking about his presidency, and another book ends World War II on page 300 and then describes the the 7 years between 1945 and 1952 and doesn't mention his election as president until page 700, I don't think we have to conclude that Eisenhower had two separate presidencies.
