I first talked about the “Hebrew Roots” movement. I explained that the old covenant has been abrogated by Christ at his first coming and that new covenant believers are under the new law of Christ, not the Mosaic law, or even part of the Mosaic law such as the sabbath.
In the show I said I would provide the following bibliography and links.
I want to recommend several books that explain the biblical relationship between the law and the gospel; i.e., New Covenant believers are not under any of the Mosaic law, including the Mosaic law of the Sabbath, which Christ fulfilled. Instead, we are under the law of Christ:

Scripture is explicit that God made the new covenant with Israel, not the church:
(31) “Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, (32) not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, declares the LORD. (33) For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” (Jer 31:31–33 ESV)
It is a Jewish covenant, not a Gentile covenant.
However, in God’s progressive revelation in the New Testament we learn that God’s grace has been extended to include Gentiles (see Romans 11). Jew or Gentile, whoever places their faith in Christ enters into the new covenant. See also:
1 Cor 11:25 In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
Heb 7:22 so much the more also Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant.
Heb 8:8-10 For finding fault with them, He says, “ BEHOLD, DAYS ARE COMING, SAYS THE LORD, WHEN I WILL EFFECT A NEW COVENANT WITH THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL AND WITH THE HOUSE OF JUDAH; NOT LIKE THE COVENANT WHICH I MADE WITH THEIR FATHERS ON THE DAY WHEN I TOOK THEM BY THE HAND TO LEAD THEM OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT FOR THEY DID NOT CONTINUE IN MY COVENANT, AND I DID NOT CARE FOR THEM, SAYS THE LORD. “ FOR THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD: I WILL PUT MY LAWS INTO THEIR MINDS, AND I WILL WRITE THEM ON THEIR HEARTS. AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE.
Heb 9:15 For this reason He is the mediator of a new covenant, so that, since a death has taken place for the redemption of the transgressions that were committed under the first covenant, those who have been called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.
Heb 12:24 and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks better than the blood of Abel.
