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) “And God made man in his image, in the image of God he made the Adam: male and female he made them. And God gave them his blessings and said to them, Be fertile and increase, and make the earth full and be masters of it; be rulers over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing moving on 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) “Let he give the kisses of his mouth to his wife: for his love is better than wine Sweet is the smell of your perfumes; your name is as perfume running out; so the young girls give you their love. Take me to you, as well as we will go after you: the king has taken me into his place. We will be pleased and full of joy in you, we will give more thought to your love than to wine: rightly are they your lovers”. In (Genesis 2:24) says “For this cause will a man go away from his father and his mother and be joined to his wife, and they will be one flesh”. In the New Testament in (1 Corinthians 7:8-9) “ But I say to the unmarried and to the widows, It is good for them to be even as I am But if they have not self-control let them get married; for married life is better than the burning of desire”. 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 under the authority of your own husbands, as of the Lord. For the husband is the head of his wife, as Jesus Christ is the head of the house of worship, being himself the savior of the body. And as the church is under Christ’s authority, so let the wives be under the command of their husbands in all things. Husbands have loved for your own wives, even as Christ has loved the church and gave himself for it;
