Drawing from statements made in 2 John 4,5, this study considers the concept of “love,” as emphasized predominantly in the New Testament. It examines the two most prominent Greek terms translated “love” [φίλω (philo) and ἀγάπη (agape)], comparing and contrasting them with one another, in order to determine what Biblical love really is. After all, the only way to “walk in truth” (2 Jn. 4), to “love one another” (v. 5), and to love “not in word or talk but in deed and truth” (1 Jn. 3:18) is to know what “love” truly is—in other words, to know what it really means to “love,” in the eyes of God (cf. Mt. 5:44-46; 22:37-39; John 13:34,35; 14:15,21,23,24; 1 Jn. 5:3; 2 Jn. 6; et al.).
