Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. (Matthew 5:17)
Do you think Jesus followed the Jewish laws or not?
I use this quote all the time to try and explain to Christians WHY they should STILL be following the OT laws. Jesus was Jewish and followed the Jewish laws. What he had a problem with was the way the Pharisees were INTERPRETING the laws- which was the wrong way, but he, himself and his disciples followed the word of God and the laws.
The verse after the one in the OP is I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
As far as I can see, the earth is still here and therefore, the Law should STILL be followed. This this speaks of when Jesus is supposed to RETURN. The law will not need to be followed because then all will have been accomplished.
