The question of when ‘the Law’ was over is curious. In Luke 16:16, Jesus seems to associate it with John the Baptist:

The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John. Since that time, the good news of the kingdom of God is being preached, and everyone is forcing their way into it.

Would this be John’s birth, or the onset of his ministry?

In Luke 3:10–14 we find the end of the Law being realized.

“What should we do then?” the crowd asked. John answered, “Anyone who has two shirts should share with the one who has none, and anyone who has food should do the same.” Even tax collectors came to be baptized. “Teacher,” they asked, “what should we do?” “Don’t collect any more than you are required to,” he told them. Then some soldiers asked him, “And what should we do?” He replied, “Don’t extort money and don’t accuse people falsely — be content with your pay.”

I’d note these problems all characterize Christian churches — not sharing, money problems and false accusations.
