In John 21:16, Jesus asked Simon Peter "Do you love me more than these" and Peter replied 3x that "Yes, Lord; You know that I love you." Why did Jesus asked Peter same question 3x? What kind of love Jesus is asking to Peter?

What love!

Yes, Dan, and what hope and assurance we have that our Savior will love us and pick us up when we trip spiritually! The difference in Peter's life was the power of the Holy Spirit beginning at Pentecost, coupled with the intense desire to serve his Savior, whatever the cost.
