	I can not figuare out how to find agape in the Septuagint.  Is there

	aconcordance for it????  I'm trying to find when the word agape
first came 
	into use in greek.

A quick Bibleworks search reveals 233 verses with 317 instances of AGAP* in
Rahlf's. The LXX translators used AGAPHTOS and AGAPAW four times in Gen 22
describing Abraham's feelings towards Isaac. A standard Concordance in book
form is Hatch and Redpath. The Perseus site is a good tool to check uses of
AGAPH in extra-biblical Greek references.
