In the Bhagavad Gita, Arjuna (or any of the others) doesn't ask for Krishna a proof of His supremacy/divinity/Godliness. He just assumes Krishna to be divine and correct.

Is there a dialogue (chapter and verse please) where Arjuna questions the authenticity of Krishna ? When exactly does Arjuna come to believe that what Krishna says is the ultimate truth and not just His mendacity ?

  • In Gita, Arjuna asked about Krishna's supremacy...for example, see 4.4 shloka...11.3 shloka is related to ur another question...

    Forgive me if this is incorrect, but I think he believes in Kṛṣṇá's divinity since before the events of Bhagavad Gita. I remember it being mentioned in Mahabharata before the battle. Certainly he is fully convinced by Chapter 10 of BG. Oct 18 '18 at 5:02

    @RubelliteYakṣī Perfect. I think Arjuna never asked Krishna for proving their supremacy. But, Lord Krishna himself proved his supremacy in Chapter 10 & 11. So, after that Arjuna never required for that question. Oct 18 '18 at 6:00

According to Srila Prabhupada BG 11.3

"...Now as far as Arjuna is concerned, he is inspired by the statements of Kṛṣṇa, but in order to convince others in the future who may think that Kṛṣṇa is an ordinary person, Arjuna desires to see Him actually in His universal form, to see how He is acting from within the universe, although He is apart from it..."
