The other one is an extended one in the conversation between
Jesus and Peter, where Jesus uses AGAPAW for "do you love
me?" and Peter replies with FILEW instead. The interplay has to
do with the nuances of these two words, since the former means
"do you love me enough to die for me?" while the latter means "I
like you a lot." I'd be interested to know what the Aramaic (or
Hebrew) words are that could have been used for this subtle
