Is Christ the end of Law – Part 1

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. Romans 10:4

The translators of KJV were protestants who didn’t believe the difference between ceremonial Laws (which were shadow of Christ ministration) and the Moral Law (which is everlasting). So they translated the Greek word τέλος telos as  end in Rom 10:4 but the correct translation should be For Christ is the purpose or the focusof the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

See how the word telos is used in other verses

Now the endof the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: 1 Timothy 1:5

Receivingthe end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:9

..Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord.. James 5:11

just imagine if Christ is the end of Law as some people interpret and teach then I can commit adultery, fornication.

To be continued..

  1. For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. Romans 10:3. The subject of Romans 10:3,4 is righteousness. How are we going to be righteous? How are we going to achieve it? Christ is the end or way by which we can achieve it – there’s no other way to be righteous.

  2. We can only attain to the righteousness of the law through Christ He is the way, in fact He is the only way. He is end by which the Christian can be righteous.
