I would like to ask if there is a difference of "Love" in the bible.
I seem to notice that there are differences of love when it comes to the old testament and to the new testament of the bible, or probably its just me.
Because you do not reference the areas or passages of which you refer, a complete answer of your question is a bit difficult. In general, there is defiantly a difference in the way love is viewed as well as expressed... throughout life as well as in the Bible. While the English language uses love as a blanket term, it's becomes more specialized in Greek. You've no doubt heard of the terms philos (brotherly), eros (sensual), and agape (unconditional). All refer to an act of love, but from very different points of view and context for sure.
Very well said Matt. I was going to give the definitions but I couldn't remember the words designated each.
Yes, agape, philos, eros and one more storge, which is the most natural of loves, love of family.
There are different kinds of love mentioned in the Bible as there are different kinds of love in life. There is the love God has for us, the love we have for him, love between two people, love for ones children, and so on. Yes, there are many types of love mentioned.
there are actually over 20 different kinds and variations of love throughout the bible and they are easily found and understood with a good concordance and strongs.
unfortunately the only bible translation that I know of that differentiates them is the amplified and it is not widely used.

It's a favourite topic with atheists to go through the Bible looking for anything that may support Jesus was a hypocrite and wicked man. So what were these supposed evils?
