Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Noun Strong's Number: g2288 Greek: thanatos

Death, Death-Stroke (See Also Die):

"death," is used in Scripture of:

(a) the separation of the soul (the spiritual part of man) from the body (the material part), the latter ceasing to function and turning to dust, e.g., Jhn 11:13; Hbr 2:15; 5:7; 7:23. In Hbr 9:15, the AV, "by means of death" is inadequate; the RV, "a death having taken place" is in keeping with the subject. In Rev 13:3, 12, the RV, "death-stroke" (AV, "deadly wound") is, lit., "the stroke of death:"

(b) the separation of man from God; Adam died on the day he disobeyed God, Gen 2:17, and hence all mankind are born in the same spiritual condition, Rom 5:12, 14, 17, 21, from which, however, those who believe in Christ are delivered, Jhn 5:24; 1Jo 3:14. "Death" is the opposite of life; it never denotes non-existence. As spiritual life is "conscious existence in communion with God," so spiritual "death" is "conscious existence in separation from God."

"Death, in whichever of the above-mentioned senses it is used, is always, in Scripture, viewed as the penal consequence of sin, and since sinners alone are subject to death, Rom 5:12, it was as the Bearer of sin that the Lord Jesus submitted thereto on the Cross, 1Pe 2:24. And while the physical death of the Lord Jesus was of the essence of His sacrifice, it was not the whole. The darkness symbolized, and His cry expressed, the fact that He was left alone in the Universe, He was 'forsaken;' cp. Mat 27:45, 46." *
[* From Notes on Thessalonians, by Hogg and Vine, p. 134.]

A-2 Noun Strong's Number: g336 Greek: anairesis

Death, Death-Stroke (See Also Die):

another word for "death," lit. signifies "a taking up or off" (ana, "up," airo, "to take"), as of the taking of a life, or "putting to death;" it is found in Act 8:1, of the murder of Stephen. Some mss. have it in Act 22:20. See anaireo, under KILL. In the Sept., Num 11:15; Jdg 15:17, "the lifting of the jawbone."

A-3 Noun Strong's Number: g5054 Greek: teleute

Death, Death-Stroke (See Also Die):

"an end, limit" (cp. telos, see END), hence, "the end of life, death," is used of the "death" of Herod, Mat 2:15.

B-1 Adjective Strong's Number: g1935 Greek: epithanatios

Death, Death-Stroke (See Also Die):

"doomed to death" (epi, "upon," thanatos, A, No. 1), is said of the apostles, in 1Cr 4:9.

C-1 Verb Strong's Number: g2289 Greek: thanatoo

Death, Death-Stroke (See Also Die):

"to put to death" (akin to A, No. 1), in Mat 10:21; Mar 13:12; Luk 21:16, is translated "shall... cause (them) to be put to death," lit., "shall put (them) to death" (RV marg.). It is used of the Death of Christ in Mat 26:59; 27:1; Mar 14:55; 1Pe 3:18. In Rom 7:4 (Passive Voice) it is translated "ye... were made dead," RV (for AV, "are become"), with reference to the change from bondage to the Law to union with Christ; in Rom 8:13, "mortify" (marg., "make to die"), of the act of the believer in regard to the deeds of the body; in Rom 8:36, "are killed;" so in 2Cr 6:9.

C-2 Verb Strong's Number: g337 Greek: anaireo

Death, Death-Stroke (See Also Die):

lit., "to take or lift up or away" (see A, No. 2), hence, "to put to death," is usually translated "to kill or slay;" in two places "put to death," Luk 23:32; Act 26:10. It is used 17 times, with this meaning, in Acts.

C-3 Verb Strong's Number: g520 Greek: apago

Death, Death-Stroke (See Also Die):

lit., "to lead away" (apo, "away," ago, "to lead"), is used especially in a judicial sense, "to put to death," e.g., Act 12:19.

C-4 Verb Strong's Number: g615 Greek: apokteino

Death, Death-Stroke (See Also Die):

"to kill," is so translated in the RV, for the AV, "put to death," in Mar 14:1; Luk 18:33; in Jhn 11:53; 12:10; 18:31, RV, "put to death."

Note: The phrase eschatos echo, lit., "to have extremely," i.e., "to be in extremity," in extremis, "at the last (gasp), to be at the point of death," is used in Mar 5:23.
