How God can be a definition for love
Chris
ho theos agape estin
Explanation:
1 Jo. 4:16
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.
