Peter Denies Jesus
After the guards seized Jesus, they took him to the house of the high priest. Peter was following at a distance.
When he saw there was some fire burning in the court, he came and sat down with them to get warm from the cold.
A servant girl recognized him and said, “He was with Him.”
Peter denied it, “I don’t know him.”
Someone else saw him and said, “You are one of them.”
Peter replied, “No, I am not.”
After an hour, another man accused Peter, “This man certainly was with them.”
Peter replied, “I don’t know what you are talking about.”
Just about that time, the rooster crowed three times. Peter remembered what Jesus had spoken to him and he went outside to weep bitterly.
