Peter Denies Jesus

And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple. Now that disciple was known to the high priest, and went with Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest. 16 But Peter stood at the door outside. Then the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to her who kept the door, and brought Peter in. 17 Then the servant girl who kept the door said to Peter, “You are not also one of this Man’s disciples, are you?”

He said, “I am not.”

18 Now the servants and officers who had made a fire of coals stood there, for it was cold, and they warmed themselves. And Peter stood with them and warmed himself. — John 18:15-18.

Simon Peter and another disciple known to the high priest follow Jesus as He is taken to the high priest. While the other disciple goes into the courtyard of the high priest, Peter stands at the door outside. The disciple known to the high priest speaks to the female gatekeeper and brings Peter into the courtyard. The gatekeeper asks Peter if he is one of Jesus’ disciples. Peter denies it and thus fails his first temptation while he stands warming himself with other servants and officers around a coal fire since it is cold.
