Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g1217 Greek: demiourgos


lit., "one who works for the people" (from demos, "people," ergon, "work;" an ancient inscription speaks of the magistrates of Tarsus as demiourgoi: the word was formerly used thus regarding several towns in Greece; it is also found used of an artist), came to denote, in general usage, a builder or "maker," and is used of God as the "Maker" of the heavenly city, Hbr 11:10. In that passage the first word of the two, technites, denotes "an architect, designer," the second, demiourgos, is the actual Framer; the city is the archetype of the earthly one which God chose for His earthly people. Cp. ktistes, "creator."
