A question from a novice!

<x-charset iso-8859-1>Hi,
I have a question on the definition of AGAPH: What distinguishes this word
from other Greek words meaning love? From its usage in 1 John 3:16 and
elsewhere, I have always connected this word with self-sacrifice or self
denial. However hardly any lexicons I have used seem to make this link. Am
I correct in believing that AGAPH is self-denying love and this is what
distinguishes it from other Greek words for love?
