    It is well known that "love" in the New Testament almost always means unselfish agape love. The Greek word for sexual love or romantic love, eros, is never used at all in the New Testament. Even marital love is ideally agape love in its main expression, as in Paul's exhortation in Ephesians   God's Love in The New Testament The Son of Man was lifted up on a cross so that whoever trusts in Him will know God. God loved the world so much that He gave His only begotten Son, so that whoever trusts in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.

Let us look at how this agape love is portrayed in the New Testament. Whenever the word ‘love’ appears in the following verses, unless otherwise noted, it is a translation of the Greek word ‘agape’. Christ followers are commanded to love one another. Jesus said that loving one another is not an option for the believer; it is a commandment.

    Word: King James Version: New American Standard Version - ed. New International Version: New Revised Standard Version: Old Testament: New Testament. When James ordered a new translation. It was to be accurate and true to the originals. He appointed fifty of the nation's finest language scholars and approved rules for carefully checking the results. James also wanted a popular translation. He insisted that the translation use old familiar terms and names and be readable in the idiom of the day.
