Peter was warming himself by a fire in the high priest's courtyard
servant girl asked, "Weren't you with Jesus?"
"I don't know Him," said Peter. Later, someone else asked the same
thing, and once again Peter denied knowing Jesus.
An hour later, another man spoke to Peter. "Surely you're one of
Jesus' followers. You even talk like them."
"I don't know what you're talking about!" cried Peter. Just then a
rooster crowed, and Peter remembered Jesus' words. Moments later,
as Jesus was being led by the guards, He turned and looked at
Peter. Peter went away and cried bitterly.
