N. B. Here Matthew and Mark bring in the history of our Lord's trial as the principal fact. (See at Luke xxii. 66. p. 290.) Then they relate Peter's denials as follows:
Peter's first denial.
Mat. Now Peter sat without in the palace; and a damsel came unto him,
Saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.
Mar. And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest, And when she saw Peter warming himself,

Art not thou also one of this man's disci ples?

LukeAnd after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.
N. B. John having related the first denial, which happened immediately after Peter entered the hall, ver. 17, 18. he gives the history of our Lord's trial as the principal fart (see at Luke xxii. 66. p. 290.); then brings in the third denial as follows.
