Vocabulary of the Greek NT

From denoting ";the tool for engraving,"; χαρακτήρ came to be used of the ";mark,"; ";impress"; made, with special reference to any distinguishing peculiarity, and hence = ";an exact reproduction."; The word is found in the NT only in Heb. 1:3, cf. OGIS 383.60 (mid. i/B.C.) χαρακτῆρα μορφῆς ἐμῆς, of a statue.

Other exx. are Syll 226 (=.3495).16 (c, B.C. 320) τοῦ δὲ ξένου φέροντος ἐπὶ τὸν χαρακτῆρα, P. Flor I. 61.21 (A.D. 85) (= Chrest. II. p. 88) οὐ τῶν χαρα [κτή ]ρων μόνων κληρο [ν ]όμους δεῖ εἶναι, and P Leid Wxxiv. 11 (ii/iii A.D.) (= II. p. 159) τέλει τέ μοι κύριε, τὸν μέγαν, κύριον, ἄφθεγτον χαρακτῆρα (";notam";), ἵνα αὐτὸν ἔχω. In the case of Syll.3 783.23 (after B.C. 27) μέχρι τῶν Σεβαστείων εὐπλόησεν χαρακτήρων, Deissmann (LAE2 p. 341 n..1) translates ";he made a successful voyage to the August Persons (Augustus and Livia),"; taking χαρακτήρ thus early in the transferred sense of ";person."; See also notes on the word by J. Geffcken in Exp T xxi. p. 426 f., and by A. Körte in Hermes lxiv. (1929), p. 69 ff.
