Where is philia love mentioned in the Bible?
Answer The Greek language has different words for different types of love, including agape (unconditional love) and philia (brotherly love). The most important biblical passage that mentions philia is in John's Gospel. Here, Jesus implied that the other disciples gave him unconditional love when he asked Peter, "Do you love (agape) me more than these (the other disciples)?" Each time, Peter answered that he loved Jesus, but each time he was only able to offer brotherly love (philia).
