Did Jesus do away with God's Law and Commandments?


If we claim to be a New Covenant believer, then shouldn't we adhere to its definition?

A New Covenant 31 “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— 32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the Lord. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

Jeremiah 31:31-34

No Laws or Commandments?

So what happens if we make this claim but then say God's commandments have been done away with? Especially when New Testament has passages about the future where God's commandments have not been done away with? Consider the following...

"Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus." Revelation 14:12

"Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. 15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie." Revelation 22:14-15

Something to think about.
