Why did Jesus asked Peter 3 times?
This is the question Jesus is really asking Peter. Peter had expressed a willingness to follow and even die for Jesus (John 13:36-37).

Why did Jesus choose Peter as a disciple?
But Jesus chose Peter. The main reason could not be Peter’s character of his strength, but rather the strength of his faith. Deep down he knew himself to be weak and imperfect, hence he was convinced that his total security and strength could only come from a power greater than his own.
