charagma G5480 [mark, stamp]
A. The Greek World.
1. This word denotes an engraved, etched, branded, or inscribed "mark" or "sign." It can be used for an "inscription" or a "stamp," e.g., the imperial stamp on decrees. The impress on coins gives it the more general sense of "money."
2. The word does not occur in the LXX, though we find charasso, "to inscribe," in Sir_50:27.
3. In Rev_13:11 ff. the second beast demands cultic recognition of the image of the first. The mark which is required in vv. 16-17 probably indicates the religious totalitarianism of emperor worship. Marking is common in antiquity (cf. slaves, and the branding of devotees with the marks of deities). The number 666 may well be a cipher for Nero; we thus have a confrontation between the claim of the emperor with his mark and the claim of Christ with his seal (Rev_7:1 ff.). The angel threatens with eschatological judgment all who bear the charagma of the beast (14:9, 11; cf. 16:2; 19:20). Those who do not bear it have the role of eschatological judges (20:4). A different sense is apparent in Act_17:29, where "handiwork" is meant. What we make cannot resemble deity, but we ourselves are God’s offspring and are thus close to him (vv. 27-28).
