Did you catch the purpose of a teleologist? It is to attempt to "understand the purpose of something by looking at its results".
So why is this important and how does it connect with Scripture? Let's look at Romans 10:4.
For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. (Romans 10:4 NASB)
Most Christians who have a low view of the Law of G-d will point to this passage and boldly proclaim, "See... Christ is the end of the law! It met its purpose to lead us to Him but now that He has come, the Law is ended... and He is the one who ended it!"
Here is where our Word of the Day comes into play. The original Greek of Romans 10:4 is this:
τέλος γὰρ νόμου Χριστὸς εἰς δικαιοσύνην παντὶ τῷ πιστεύοντι
Transliterated into English:
Telos gar nomou Christos eis dikaiosynen panti toi pisteuonti
Telos... there it is at the beginning of this verse.
Did G-d speak this verse through Paul to teach us that His Law has ended?
Not at all.
Now that we have the proper understanding of telos courtesy of Merriam-Webster, we can see that this verse tells us Christ is the purpose of the Law. His perfect, sinless life is the purpose/goal/objective of the Law.
We can be Biblical teleologists. We can understand the purpose of the Law by looking at its result: Christ.
Dr. Bill Mounce, author, pastor, preacher, professor of New Testament and Greek studies at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and the New Testament chair of the English Standard Version (ESV) translation of the Bible, has also created the Mounce Reverse-Interlinear New Testament (MRINT) translation. His translation of this passage reads
For Christ is the end of the law, so now there is righteousness for everyone who believes. (Romans 10:4 MRINT)
Messiah is the goal of the Law. So now that the Law has accomplished its goal, there is righteousness for everyone who believes.
That Law written on tablets of stone cannot accomplish its purpose but that very same Law written on our hearts is the very promise of the New Covenant (Jeremiah 31:31-33).
Oh, Heavenly Father, make us more like Messiah Yeshua and write your Law upon our hearts!
