What is the Greek word for love?

Question: What is the biblical Greek word for love?

Answer: There are multiple words for love in biblical Greek:

ἀγάπη love

The Greek word for God's unconditional love for man is ἀγάπη (agápē).

ἔρως love

The Greek word for physical, intimate love is ἔρως (érōs).

φιλέω love

The Greek word for brotherly love is φιλέω (phil-eh'-oh).

στοργή love

The Greek word for familial love and affection is στοργή (stor-gay).

There are of course additional words in ancient Greek for love that were not used in the Bible.
