A Reflection on the Gospel of John 21:15-19 (26 May 2023)
This Scripture passage is so familiar to me that I take for granted, don't really think about it. Your explanation of the different words in Greek has really spoken to me and brought renewed life to the passage!
Really good, and timely! Thanks for providing this article. So is Peter's phelio a lower "form" of Love compared to the one Jesus is asking about (Agape)? Or is it just of a different character? To me a true, deep love from the heart seems HIGHER than a love from the head, but I thought Agape was supposed to be greater than phileo.
