Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g5078 Greek: techne

Craft, Craftsman:

"craft," Rev 18:22: see ART.

2 Strong's Number: g5079 Greek: technites

Craft, Craftsman:

akin to No. 1, "an artificer, artisan, craftsman," is translated "craftsman" in Act 19:24, 38 and Rev 18:22. It is found elsewhere in Hbr 11:10 "builder;" but this is practically the same as "maker" (demiourgos, the next noun in the verse; see No. 5, Note). 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.

3 Strong's Number: g2039 Greek: ergasia

Craft, Craftsman:


4 Strong's Number: g3673 Greek: homotechnos

Craft, Craftsman:

"one of the same trade" (from homos, "same," and techne, see No. 1), is used in Act 18:3 (RV, "trade"). Cp. architekton, "master-builder," 1Cr 3:10.

5 Strong's Number: g3313 Greek: meros

Craft, Craftsman:

"a part, portion," is translated "craft" in Act 19:27, AV; "trade," RV (cp. ergasia in v. 25).

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," Hbr 11:10. This has reference to the structure, No. 2 to the design. Cp. ktistes, "a creator."
