Post subject:  Why does Abraham seem to contradict Jesus?

Why did Abraham say "If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they believe, if one rise again from the dead" (Luke 16:31), when Jesus said "Woe to thee, Corozain, woe to thee, Bethsaida: for if in Tyre and Sidon had been wrought the miracles that have been wrought in you, they had long ago done penance in sackcloth and ashes" (Matt. 11:21)? It seems like there's a contradiction here, and it bothers me. Can anyone help? And may I ask you to pray for me?

Abraham is speaking of the rich man's brothers in particular. It's possible (and I would say likely) that some in Tyre and Sidon would have held out even in the face of miracles.
