"...the old covenant and its laws no longer apply"

You are mistaken. There are two parts to law - ceremonial and moral. The ceremonial was done away with; moral law stands forever.

Please direct me to this in the Bible.

As far as the Moral code of the law, I think people are making a mistake trying to separate the Law in the form of ceremony vs moral code from the period of Grace.

(Gal 2:16 KJV) Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

Paul here made absolutely no distinction between Ceremony and Moral precept, for the idea of ceremony had to have a moral precept, did it not?

Else, why the ceremony? Why would the Lord institute a ceremony which had no moral precept for it to be based on?
