Important to note that Jesus is talking to his disciples (believers) not the lost.

The only way to regain that inheritance is to follow Jesus - ...

The resurrection of many saints appearing to "many" http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_27:53 As well as Herod's massacre of the firsborn http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massacre_of_the_Innocents are two things in the Gospel of Matthew that are not recorded anywhere in known history, even though one would expect them to be.
