    The unconditional love of God offered in Jesus Christ to all the world.

    It is;
    To know God, because God is agape. (1 John 4:8)

    Whoever abides in agape abides in God, and God abides in them. (1 John 4:16)

    In this the agape of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is agape, not that we have agaped God but that he agaped us and sent his Son...(1 John 4:9-10)

    By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have agape for one another (John 13:35)

    This is my commandment, that you agape one another as I have agaped you (John 15:12)

    And my favorite---I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have agaped them even as you have agaped me. (John 17:23)

    It is a Greek word and I believe it means platonic love.

    Agape is a religious meal held in the evening by the early Christians to promote fellowship and benefit the poor. The name comes from the Greek agape (love) and often is translated as "love feast." In the earliest Christian times the Eucharist was celebrated at a meal, and St. Paul called both celebration and meal "the Lord's supper" (I Corinthians 11:20). By the 2nd century, however, the Eucharist had been separated from the meal, and the meal became known as the agape.

    Each person at the agape received from the bishop, who had to be present, a piece of blessed bread (called "eulogy," not "eucharist"), and each took and blessed his own cup of wine. Both agape and Eucharist inherited these elements from the Jewish meal. After the official recognition of Christianity by Rome in 313, the love feasts began to lose their religious character and therefore were suppressed by the church.
