By Don Ruhl

One of the servant girls of the high priest saw Peter and knew that he had been a follower of Jesus of Nazareth. He denied knowing Jesus. A little later she saw him again,

And the servant girl saw him again, and began to say to those who stood by, “This is one of them” (Mark 14.69).

When she saw him the second time, she had no doubt that she had seen Peter with Jesus and her confidence led her to point him out to others.

Peter’s association was known and he could not deny it successfully. He would eventually deny knowing Jesus three times and when Peter realized what he had done, he wept, knowing how he had let Jesus down.
