Jesus’ Condemnation and Peter’s Denials

22:54 Then 1  they arrested 2  Jesus, 3  led him away, and brought him into the high priest’s house. 4  But Peter was following at a distance. 22:55 When they had made a fire in the middle of the courtyard and sat down together, Peter sat down among them. 22:56 Then a slave girl, 5  seeing him as he sat in the firelight, stared at him and said, “This man was with him too! 22:57 But Peter 6  denied it: “Woman, 7  I don’t know 8  him! 22:58 Then 9  a little later someone else 10  saw him and said, “You are one of them too.” But Peter said, “Man, 11  I am not! 22:59 And after about an hour still another insisted, 12  “Certainly this man was with him, because he too is a Galilean.” 13  22:60 But Peter said, “Man, I don’t know what you’re talking about!” At that moment, 14  while he was still speaking, a rooster crowed. 15  22:61 Then 16  the Lord turned and looked straight at Peter, and Peter remembered the word of the Lord, 17  how he had said to him, “Before a rooster crows today, you will deny me three times.” 22:62 And he went outside and wept bitterly. 18 

22:63 Now 19  the men who were holding Jesus 20  under guard began to mock him and beat him.
