Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Pattern
PATTERN. This word is used to render several Heb. and Gr. terms in OT and NT, some of which denote a model , as in Exodus 25:9 ; Exodus 25:40 of the building model of the Tabernacle shown to Moses on the mount (cf. Numbers 8:4 a different original and Arts and Crafts, § 3 ), others a copy of the original model as Hebrews 8:5 RV [1] . See, for a full examination of the different passages, Hastings’ DB [2] , s.v .

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Pattern
In the EV_ of the NT ‘pattern’ occurs seven times, representing four different words in the original-τύπος, ὑποτύπωσις, ὑπόδειγμα, and ἀντίτυπον.
1. τύπος (from τύπτειν, ‘to strike’) denotes primarily a mark or impression left by a blow (cf. John 20:25 ‘the print [1] of the nails’). In classical Greek it is used of the impress of a seal or the stamp struck by a die, and so comes to mean the figure or copy of something else. But as the impression on the wax reproduces the engraving on the seal, and the coin or medal the device on the die, the word comes to be transferred, by a familiar process in the history of language, from the effect to the cause, and so is used not only of the copy but of the example or pattern from which the copy is made. In Romans 6:17 the RVm_ offers ‘pattern’ as an alternative for ‘form’ of doctrine or teaching. In Titus 2:7 the AV_ has ‘pattern (RV_ ‘ensample’) of good works.’ In Hebrews 8:5 the AV_ and the RV_ both employ ‘pattern’ to render the τύπος shown to Moses in the Mount.
2. ὑποτύπωσις (from ὑποτυποῦν, ‘to sketch out,’ Lat. adumbrare) is strictly a ‘sketch’ or ‘outline’ (αἱ Ὑποτυπώσεις) is the name given by Sextus Empiricus to his outlines of the Pyrrhonic philosophy). In 1 Timothy 1:16 (‘a pattern [2] to them which should hereafter believe’) St. Paul may have used the word in its original meaning to suggest that his experiences as a saved sinner were an ‘adumbration’ of those of subsequent believers. But the secondary meaning ‘pattern’ is more probable, in view of the fact that the word is evidently used in this sense in 2 Timothy 1:13, ‘hold fast the form (RV_ ‘pattern’) of sound words.’
3. ὑπόδειγμα (from ὑποδεικνύναι, ‘to show,’ with the suggestion of placing what is shown under the very eyes) is properly a thing exhibited as an example or pattern. In this sense the word is used several times in the NT (e.g. John 13:15, ‘I have given you an example’; James 5:10, ‘an example of suffering affliction’). The AV_ takes it in this sense in Hebrews 9:23 and renders ‘patterns.’ But ὑπόδειγμα, like τύπος, may denote a copy as well as a pattern; and in rendering ‘copies’ here the RV_ clearly conveys the correct idea, since the things referred to are ‘the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry’ (Hebrews 9:21), which were only copies of ‘the heavenly things themselves.’ Cf. Hebrews 8:5, where the RV_ rightly changes ‘the example (ὑποδείγματι) and shadow of heavenly things’ into ‘a copy and shadow of the heavenly things.’
4. ἀντίτυπα (Hebrews 9:24) is probably to be taken as an adjective rather than a substantive (ἀντίτυπος = ‘answering to the type,’ ‘corresponding to the pattern,’ no doubt with reference to the τύπος of Hebrews 8:5; see above). The RV_, ‘like in pattern to the true,’ is therefore to be preferred to the AV_, ‘the figures of the true.’

In Acts 7:44 , Stephen said that the whole tabernacle, which he called “the Tent of the Testimony” (REB), was made according to “the Pattern” that Moses had seen. But did Moses see the “heavenly tabernacle” that is called the Pattern? Or did God grant to Moses to see a Pattern from which a rough earthly counterpart of the heavenly reality could be constructed? I think it was the latter. The word tupos means a model or Pattern. Pattern as a mold or norm While Stephen pointed out a bad Pattern in the case of idolatry, Paul emphasized a good Pattern in Romans 6:17 . He described the gospel as “the Pattern or norm of teaching for the learning of which you were given over [1]. ” The gospel is a norm or Pattern showing how we should live (compare Romans 1:16-17 ). Persons as examples or Patterns When people internalize the gospel, their lives begin a process of transformation. Paul spoke of himself and his fellow workers as examples or Patterns. He urged the Philippians to become imitators of himself: “you have us as an example or Pattern” (Romans 3:17 ). He said to the Thessalonians, “But we gave ourselves to you as a model or Pattern that you should imitate us” (2 Thessalonians 3:9 ). Paul obtained mercy and God showed His forbearance to Paul “for a model, Pattern, example for those who were about to believe in Christ” (1 Timothy 1:16 ). ...
