Lord Krishna possessed the strongest army, and was revered as the wisest teacher and the greatest yogi. Krishna offered to give his vast army to one of the contenders in the great battle and to become a charioteer and counselor for the other, but he would not touch any weapon nor participate in the battle in any manner. Arjuna had chosen Krishna instead of his vast army therefore Lord Krishna chose Arjun to preach Gita. Besides, he was the dear friend and brother-in-law of Lord Krishna. Arjuna was the third son, born of Indra, king of the heavenly gods (devas).Arjuna was sensitive and thoughtful. His sense of duty was acute; he once chose to go into exile rather than refuse to help a brahmin subject. Lord Krishna knew Arjuna was a diligent student. While Guru Dronacharya was testing the skills of his students in the archery only Arjuna had proved that he had the power of concentration.

Arjun was a great warrier than the other 4 , he was closer to Krishna and when Arjun was in the W field Krishna was his Sarathy..and so Krishna was just just preaching all gitopadesha in order to make him stronger and give much strength to fight...

Arjun was a great warrior with strong emotion - he was friend of Sri Krishna .. his sarathi was Sri Krishna .. in Kuruskhetra war field he was the representative of all of us - SriKrishna did choose him to give lessons to all of us.

It is some sort of weakness of great warriors, who know almost all war skills ,that they need an emotionall support or inspiration from others to uncover their real power.
shrikrishna knew arjuna was the dangerous man in the side if he clicked....the same instance happened with hanuman inspired by jambava in ramayan

Arjun was not the idealistic person like Dharmaputra Yudhisthir. He was a real person ... not a mere person Purushukar ... he truely represents our mind which usually face Kurukshetra sangram almost regularly in practical. Moreover, Arjun was in bishad (dilemma, pain and in psychological dwindilsm) - so the receptor was ready and befitting.

Because Arjun was combination of wisdom, knowledge, action, foresight, ambition and persuasion.
Dharma was not having all such qualities.

Kurukshetra is the field of action. It is also the field of Dharma or righteousness: Dharmakshetra. But mostly you had one side full of greed and blinding passion [the Kauravas] and on the other, the people of righteousness [the Pandavas]. Krishna is the charioteer on Arjun's side. Arjun is Purushottama, the greatest being. So Dharmakshetra-Kurukshetra was the ideal place, where Arjun would be willing to listen, to ask questions, to learn all he could. He became despondent and he was wondering who would benefit from his actions. In the transition between action and another action, there is a time where Arjuna meditates. It is there that Arjun can realize the permanence of truth in opposition to the duality of truth, untruth and illusion, etc., It was like an 'acme' in the time line or the sequence of the events.
It is a time to face the importance and power of Dharma and of the obedience to God...And so, Arjun was the the best choice for Krishna rather than Dharm...!
