My friend tells me that "jesus freed us from the old testament." Does it say that anywhere in the bible?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Harris Tweed May 15, 2010. 11 Replies

Whenever I am arguing with my friend and I bring up a passage from the old testament he says that it doesn't matter because christians don't follow the old testament. Is this true?

"Regardless of the statements in the bible, why is the OT still in the bible? If jesus freed them from following the OT then rip it out. Seems to me there should be yet another version of the bible...right?"
