What is Eros

what is eros

Eros is a Greek word which means desire and is used for husband and wife’s love. It is a physical and sensual love. This love can only be between two persons. Eros is not mentioned in the Bible but what is Eros according to the Bible? I am going to explain so if we see The Bible from the starting when God saw the man alone so he decided to make him a help meet for him. (Genesis 2:18) “And  The Lord said, it is not good enough for the man to be by himself: I will make one like himself as a help to him”.

What is Eros love in the Bible

As in (Genesis 1:27-28) “Then God created a man according to His own image, in the image of God he created the Adam; male and female he made humans. And God blessed them and said, Be fruitful and increase, and replenish the earth and subdue it; And have the authority all over the fishes of the sea, and the birds of the sky, and all the creatures that are in the earth”. But this love needs to be between the husband and wife not to share with any other person. In (Song of Solomon 1:1-4) “He kissed me with the kisses of his mouth because his love is better than wine. The fragrance of perfumes like yours is exquisite, your name is like the perfume pouring. That is why women love you. Pull me up I will run behind you. The king has brought me to my castle. We will rejoice and rejoice in you, We will discuss your love more than wine; They just love you”. In (Genesis 2:24) says “For this reason, the man will leave this parent and stay with his wife and they will remain one flesh”. In the New Testament in (1 Corinthians 7:8-9) “But I say about the widows and the unmarried, that it is good for them to remain like me. But if they can not self-control, then marry; Because it is good for them to get married but not commit to sin”. In (Ephesians 5:22-25) here Paul represents or compare God as Groom to the church, But this is spiritual, not sexual love. “Wives, be in subjection to your husbands, as the Lord’s. Because the husband is the head of the family like Jesus Christ is the head of the assembly or the house of worship, and self-redeemer of his own body. But as the church is subject to Jesus Christ, So the Wives also be subject to their own husbands in everything. Husband, you must love your wives like Jesus Christ loved the church or the house of worship and gave himself to the church;
