i find this very interesting.
apparently there are four types of LOVE in the GREEK bible.

• Eros - http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Eros
• Philia - http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Philia
• Agape - http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Agape
• Storge - http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Storge

fascinating.

Tis true.

However Neither Eros or Storge are every used in the Bible. Although examples of both are present (Song of Solomon being an example of Eros).

Philia, and Agape are used quite often throughout the new testament.

So Yes, there are 4 words in Greek for love, but only 2 are used in writing in the Bible itself.

looks like the bahai agree on the number.

THE FOUR KINDS OF LOVE
http://reference.bahai.org/en/t/ab/PT/pt-59.html

they explain it this way.
"(a) The love of God towards the identity of God. Christ has said God is Love.
(b) The love of God for His children—for His servants.
(c) The love of man for God and
(d) the love of man for man.
These four kinds of love originate from God. These are rays from the Sun of Reality; these are the Breathings of the Holy Spirit; these are the Signs of the Reality."
