ἀγαπάω, and not φιλέω, is the word used of God's love to men, φιλανθρωπία is, however, once used with this meaning, Tit. iii. 4. ἀγαπάω is also the word ordinarily used of men's love to God, but φιλέω is once so used, 1 Cor. xvi. 22. ἀγαπάω is the word used of love to one's enemies. The interchange of the words in Jn. xxi. 15-17 is very interesting and instructive.
