What does it mean that Christ is the end of the Law?

Does nomos (Greek for law in Rom 2:14-15) mean the mosaic law or the law of Christ or natural or divine law or something else?

I am specifically interested in how to interpret this alongside Matt 5:18 "not one iota or dot will pass from the law until everything is accomplished." 

Romans 2:14 - 15

ESV - 14 For when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law. 15 They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them
