In the King James version,

The word - agape - does not appear at all.

I presume that this Greek word for a non-erotic/non-emotional form of love might just appear as "love".

How many times is the greek word agape used in the Bible?

The Bible was originally written in Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic.The King James Bible was not the first Bible.In the Bible, the term 'Love' has three translations from the Greek language for the English word 'Love' to describe which type of 'Love' the person is referring to:Romantic 'Love', like between a couple is "Eros".Brotherly 'Love' like between family members is "Philia".The kind of 'principled' love that all Christians are taught to have between each other and their 'neighbors' is 'Agape'.Therefore, when someone mentions 'Love' in the Christian Greek Scriptures or (The New Testament), they are using the 'Agape' translation.About 228 times in the New Testament.

How many times is phileo love used in the bible?

I assume you mean in the New Testament, as the Old was not originally written in Greek and Hebrew/Aramaic do not have clearly different words for love like phileo and agape. In any case, phileo is used only 25 times in the entire New Testament. This is a sharp contrast from agape/agapeo which is seen in noun or verb form at least 262 times. Most notably, phileo and agape are both used in the famous discussion between Jesus and Peter in John 21. The way Jesus chooses agape but Peter sticks to phileo until Jesus finally uses phileo as well, seems to indicate there is an important difference between the two words (for it greatly saddens Peter when Jesus switches to using phileo, even though that was the very word he chose to use in answer when Jesus was using agape.)
