Mark 14:66 Meaning and Commentary

Mark 14:66

And as Peter was beneath in the palace
Not at the lower and further end of the room, but in the lower part of it; that part in which Jesus and the sanhedrim were, being upon an advanced ground, with steps ascending to it:

there cometh one of the maids of the high priest;
the same that kept the door, and let him in. The Ethiopic version renders it, "a daughter of the high priest".

64 “You have heard the blasphemy. What do you think?” They all condemned him as worthy of death.

66 While Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant girls of the high priest came by.
