The Bible Says ...
Has the Law (Torah) Been Abolished?
According to Strong's (Hebew) #8451, Torah ('the Law') means guidance or instruction. Torah is derived from the Hebrew word Yarah (to instruct; lay a foundation; path of an arrow). Torah lays a foundation of morality, instructing and guiding a straight path to righteousness.
The fact that we are unable to keep the Torah will not be addressed at this time.
Mitzvot are the commandments contained in the Tanak (Old Testament) and are categorized by 'experts' as:
However, in Exodus 27:21 it is written:
"Aharon (Aaron) and his sons are to put it in the tent of meeting, outside the curtain in front of the testimony, and keep it burning from evening until morning before Adonai. This is to be a permanent regulation through all the generations of the people of Isra’el."
There are many other passages in the Tanak that specify the perpetuity of the commands given:
Exodus 28:42; 29:28; 30:21; and, 31:17; Leviticus 6:18 (verse 11 in the CJB), 22; 7:34, 36; 10:9, 15; 17:7; 23:14, 21, 41; 24:3; Numbers 10:8, 15:15; 18:8, 11, 19, 23; 19:10; and, Deuteronomy 5:29, to name most but not all.
As if to emphasize the importance of his commands, God states:
"In order to obey the mitzvot of Adonai your God which I am giving you, do not add to what I am saying, and do not subtract from it." (Deuteronomy 4:2)
"Everything I am commanding you, you are to take care to do. Do not add to it or subtract from it." (Deut. 13:1)
Can we find anything in the Tanak that teaches the commands will be abolished? Nope.
To say that the Torah has been abolished or some of it no longer applies to us is to say God has changed his mind.
"God is not a man who lies, or a son of man who changes His mind. Does He speak and not act, or promise and not fulfill?" (Numbers 23:19)
