Thayer's Expanded Definition
 ἀγαπητός, (ῆ, (ἀγαπάω), beloved, esteemed, dear, favorite; (opposed to ἐχθρός, Romans 11:28): υἱός μου (τοῦ Θεοῦ) ἀγαπητός, of Jesus, the Messiah, Matthew 3:17 (here WH marginal reading take ἀγαπητός absolutely, connecting it with what follows); Matthew 12:18; Matthew 17:5; Mark 1:11; Mark 9:7; Luke 3:22; Luke 9:35 (where L marginal reading T Tr WH ἐκλελεγμένος); 2 Peter 1:17, cf. Mark 12:6; Luke 20:13; (cf. Ascensio Isa. (edited by Dillmann) Luke 7:23; Luke 8:18,25, etc.). ἀγαπητοί Θεοῦ ( Winer s Grammar, 194 (182 f); B. 190 (165)) is applied to Christians as being reconciled to God and judged by him to be worthy of eternal life: Romans 1:7, cf. Romans 11:28; 1 Thessalonians 1:4; Colossians 3:12 (the Sept., Psalm 59:7 (Psalm 60:7>); Psalm 107:7 (Psalm 108:7>); Psalm 126:2 (Psalm 127:2>), ἀγαπητοί σου and αὐτοῦ, of pious Israelites). But Christians, bound together by mutual love, are ἀγαπητοί also to one another ( Philemon 1:16; 1 Timothy 6:2); hence, they are dignified with this epithet very often in tender address, both indirect ( Romans 16:5,8; Colossians 4:14; Ephesians 6:21, etc.) and direct ( Romans 12:19; 1 Corinthians 4:14; ( Philemon 1:2, Rec.); Hebrews 6:9; James 1:16; 1 Peter 2:11; 2 Peter 3:1; ( 1 John 2:7 G L T Tr WH, etc.). Generally followed by the genitive; once by the dative ἀγαπαπητοί ἡμῖν, 1 Thessalonians 2:8 (yet cf. Winer s Grammar, § 31,2; B. 190 (163)). ἀγαπητός ἐν κυρίῳ beloved in the fellowship of Christ, equivalent to dear fellow-Christian, Romans 16:8. (Not used in the Fourth Gospel or the Book of Revelation. In classical Greek from Homer, Iliad 6,401on; cf. Cope on Aristotle, rhet. 1,7, 41.)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the use of this characteristic NT designation in the Christian papyri, see for example the address of the much-discussed letter of Psenosiris P Grenf II. 73 (late iii/A.D.) ( = Selections, p. 117), Ἀπόλλωνι πρεσβυτέρῳ ἀγαπητῷ ἀδελφῷ ἐν Κ (υρί)ῳ χαίρειν. So P Lond 417.1 (c. A.D. 346) ( = II. p. 299, Selections, p. 123), P Heid 6.7 (iv/A.D.) ( = Selections, p. 125) al. The word is also found in a horoscope of A.D. 20–50 addressed to a certain Tryphon—P Oxy II. 235.2, Τρύφων ἀ ̣γ ̣α ̣π ̣ε ̣τέ : he may of course have been a Jew—see on the fem. Τρύφαινα below.
