Peter Denies Jesus Three Times Before the Rooster Crows
“But Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew. And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how that he said unto him, Before the cock crow this day thou shalt deny me thrice.” Luke 22:60-61 ASV
