 The NT abolishes nothing but RENEWS the Covenant as Yeshayahu, hence it is the B'rit Chadashah (Renewed Covenant). Yehoshua affirmed and taught Torah correctly even saying it will never pass away and paul especially did the same as well as other 'NT' writers. The Roman-Hellenist interpretation which is often miso-Jewish is the source of the hermeneutical problems. Even the term "Christ" is incompetent to refer to all that the Tzerach is. Mashiach was far more than just annointed. Many deliverers were also annointed but only One was the Tzerach.

 Gal. 27-29: For as many as have had a tevilah into Moshiach have clothed yourselves with Moshiach. There is not Yehudi nor Yevani (Greek), there is not eved (servant) nor ben chorin (freedman), there is not zachar (male) nor nekevah (female), for you are all echad in Moshiach Yehoshua/Yeshua. And, if you belong to Moshiach (YESHAYAH 53:10), then you are of the ZERAH of Avraham Avinu, you are yoreshim (heirs) according to the havtachah (promise).

This needs qualifying in that views on such matters vary between 
Christians. It is hard to argue from the New Testament that the Mosaic 
covenant has been abolished, but Shoshanna has a point that it has never 
applied to Gentiles, but only to Jews. To go further into this gets into 
abstruse and controversial Christian theology, so I will desist.
