Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In profane Greek and the LXX φιλαδελφία is confined to the love of those who are brothers by common descent, e.g. Luc. dial. deor. xxvi. 2, 4Ma 13:23, 26, 14:1 and cf. P Lond V. 1708.101 (A.D. 567?) τῇ ἐμῇ φιλαδελφίᾳ, of kindness to sisters; but in the NT the word is used in the definite sense of ";love of the brethren,"; i.e. the Christian brotherhood (Rom. 12:10, Heb. 13:1, 1Pe. 1:22, 2Pe. 1:7).
