The last 3 chapters tell the story of Jesus' death and resurrection. For the last 2 weeks we have read the other 25 chapters of Matthew. Why did matthew bother if the death and resurrection is the totality of the "Good news", he could have saved a lot of papyrus? Out of the 89 chapters of the Gospels only13 chapters are dedicated to his death and resurrection.
Well perhaps that was not the only message that Jesus came to tell or that Matthew, Mark , Luke and John wanted us to hear. The rest of the Gospels tell us that Jesus came to begin his kingdom and how we should live as his followers/subjects.
