English term or phrase: love
just the noun love
Sarah
Greek translation:agape or eros
Explanation:
I don't know if your question is about modern Greek or ancient Greek.
In classical Greek culture, many authors emphasize the difference between "eros" (a more physical and human form of love) and "agape" (a spiritual form of love). Therefore, the Greek text of the New Testament uses the term "agape" in order to describe the kind of love God nourishes for His creatures.
