The woman at the gate said to Kefa, "Aren't you another of that man's talmidim?" He said, "No, I'm not."
Now the slaves and guards had lit a fire because it was cold, and they were standing around it warming themselves; Kefa joined them and stood warming himself too.
The cohen hagadol questioned Yeshua about his talmidim and about what he taught.
Yeshua answered, "I have spoken quite openly to everyone; I have always taught in a synagogue or in the Temple where all Jews meet together, and I have said nothing in secret;
so why are you questioning me? Question the ones who heard what I said to them; look, they know what I said."
At these words, one of the guards standing by slapped Yeshua in the face and said, "This is how you talk to the cohen hagadol?"
Yeshua answered him, "If I said something wrong, state publicly what was wrong; but if I was right, why are you hitting me?"
So `Anan sent him, still tied up, to Kayafa the cohen hagadol.
Meanwhile, Shim`on Kefa was standing and warming himself. They said to him, "Aren't you also one of his talmidim?" He denied it, saying, "No, I am not."
One of the slaves of the cohen hagadol, a relative of the man whose ear Kefa had cut off, said, "Didn't I see you with him in the grove of trees?"
So again Kefa denied it, and instantly a rooster crowed.
