Love generally is the feeling of care towards someone or something, in the Old Testament
and the New Testament, love is evidently shown in different ways. First, The peculiar love of
the Father for the Son, and of the Son for the Father. It is evident that father son love was
experienced in both Old and New Testament. However, in old Testament the love was
literally to a son while in new Testament it is a symbol that we are all God`s children. Hence,

"sinners" and "enemies" seems to reach to the outmost bounds of infinity, however, we are
told of a "much more" love even than this (Rom 5:8-10).

or society, nor does He hold love at a separated control which might be discarded at will.

testament Believed in God`s plans only to them “As surely as I live . . . I take no pleasure in
the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from
