Peter Denies Jesus Twice More

Now Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. Therefore they said to him, “You are not also one of His disciples, are you?”

He denied it and said, “I am not!”

26 One of the servants of the high priest, a relative of him whose ear Peter cut off, said, “Did I not see you in the garden with Him?” 27 Peter then denied again; and immediately a rooster crowed. — John 18:25-27.

Simon Peter stands with the servants and officers in the high priest’s courtyard and warms himself. They question him whether he is Jesus’ disciple. He denies it. Malchus’ relative says that Peter was seen in the Garden of Gethsemane with Jesus. Peter denies it again; and immediately a rooster crows just as Jesus had predicted.
