Result 1- Masterbuilder
architekton from arche, "rule, beginning," and tekton, "an artificer" (whence Eng., "architect"), "a principal artificer," is used figuratively by the Apostle in 1 Cor 3:10, of his work in laying the foundation of the local church in Corinth, inasmuch as the inception of the spiritual work there devolved upon him. The examples from the papyri and from inscriptions, as illustrated by Moulton and Milligan, show that the word had a wider application than our "architect," and confirm the rendering "masterbuilder" in this passage, which is of course borne out by the context.


Result 2- Carpenter
tekton denotes any craftsman, but especially a worker in wood, a carpenter, Matt 13:55; Mark 6:3.

See also : tekton


Result 3- Craft, Craftsman
  1. techne
  2. technites
  3. ergasia
  4. homotechnos
  5. meros


1.     Craft, Craftsman techne "craft," Rev 18:22: see ART.

See also : techne


2.     Craft, Craftsman technites akin to techne, "an artificer, artisan, craftsman," is translated "craftsman" in Acts 19:24,38 and Rev 18:22. It is found elsewhere in Heb 11:10 "builder;" but this is practically the same as "maker" (demiourgos, the next noun in the verse; see Note after 5). Trench, Syn. cv., suggests that technites brings out the artistic side of creation, viewing God as "moulding and fashioning ... the materials which He called into existence." This agrees with the usage of the word in the Sept. See BUILDER.

See also : technites


3.     Craft, Craftsman ergasia see DILIGENCE

See also : ergasia


4.     Craft, Craftsman homotechnos "one of the same trade" (from homos, "same," and techne, see techne), is used in Acts 18:3 (RV, "trade"). Cp. architekton, "master-builder," 1 Cor 3:10.


5.     Craft, Craftsman meros "a part, portion," is translated "craft" in Acts 19:27, AV; "trade," RV (cp. ergasia in Acts 19:25). See BEHALF, COAST, PART, PIECE, PORTION, RESPECT, SORT.

Note: Demiourgos, "a maker," properly signifies one who works for the people, or whose work stands forth to the public gaze (demos, "people," ergon, "work"), but this idea has been lost in the use of the word, which came to signify "a maker," Heb 11:10. This has reference to the structure, technites to the design. Cp. ktistes, "a creator."
