Another word whose meaning depends solely on context: TELEIOS.
In 1 Cor. 13:7, TO TELEION is nuanced to mean "completion" by those who
think it refers to the completed canon; "maturity" by those who think it
refers to the maturing of the church in love; or "the end" by those who
think it refers to the parousia. (I'm sure many more views also exist.)
Also, in Rom. 10:4, is Christ the "end" of the Law (meaning it is no longer
in force), or the "goal" of the Law (meaning the Law points to Christ)?
