Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Verb Strong's Number: g1125 Greek: grapho

Write, Wrote, Written:

is used

(a) of "forming letters" on a surface or writing material, Jhn 8:6; Gal 6:11, where the Apostle speaks of his having "written" with large letters in his own hand, which not improbably means that at this point he took the pen from his amanuensis and finished the Epistle himself; this is not negatived by the fact that the verb is in the aorist or past definite tense, lit., "I wrote," for in Greek idiom the writer of a letter put himself beside the reader and spoke of it as having been "written" in the past; in Eng. we should say "I am writing," taking our point of view from the time at which we are doing it; cp. Phm 1:19 (this Ep. is undoubtedly a holograph), where again the equivalent English translation is in the present tense (see also Act 15:23; Rom 15:15); possibly the Apostle, in Galatians, was referring to his having "written" the body of the Epistle but the former alternative seems the more likely; in 2Th 3:17 he says that the closing salutation is written by his own hand and speaks of it as "the token in every Epistle" which some understand as a purpose for the future rather than a custom; see, however, 1Cr 16:21; Col 4:18. The absence of the token from the other Epistles of Paul can be explained differently, their authenticity not being dependent upon this;

(b) "to commit to writing, to record," e.g., Luk 1:63; Jhn 19:21, 22; it is used of Scripture as a standing authority, "it is written," e.g., Mar 1:2; Rom 1:17 (cp. 2Cr 4:13);

(c) of "writing directions or giving information," e.g., Rom 10:5, "(Moses) writeth," RV (AV, "describeth"); Rom 15:15; 2Cr 7:12;

(d) of "that which contained a record or message," e.g., Mar 10:4, 5; Jhn 19:19; 21:25; Act 23:25.

A-2 Verb Strong's Number: g1989 Greek: epistello

Write, Wrote, Written:

denotes "to send a message by letter, to write word" (stello, "to send;" Eng., "epistle"), Act 15:20; 21:25 (some mss. have apostello, "to send"); Hbr 13:22.

A-3 Verb Strong's Number: g4270 Greek: prographo

Write, Wrote, Written:

denotes "to write before," Rom 15:4 (in the best texts; some have grapho); Eph 3:3.
See SET (forth).

A-4 Verb Strong's Number: g1449 Greek: engrapho

Write, Wrote, Written:

denotes "to write in," Luk 10:20; 2Cr 3:2, 3.

A-5 Verb Strong's Number: g1924 Greek: epigrapho

Write, Wrote, Written:

is rendered "to write over or upon" (epi) in Mar 15:26; figuratively, on the heart, Hbr 8:10; 10:16; on the gates of the heavenly Jerusalem, Rev 21:12.


(1) For apographo, Hbr 12:23, AV, "written," see ENROLL.

(2) In 2Cr 3:7 "written" is a translation of en, "in," with the dative plural of gramma, a letter, lit., "in letters."

B-1 Adjective Strong's Number: g1123 Greek: graptos

Write, Wrote, Written:

from A, No. 1, "written," occurs in Rom 2:15.
