Mark 14:54 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Palace (αὐλὴν)

Rather, court, as Rev., the quadrangle round which the chambers were built. See on Matthew 26:3.

Sat with (ἦν συγκαθήμενος)

The verb with the participle denoting continuousness. What occurred after occurred while he was sitting. So Rev.

Servants

Rev., officers. See on Matthew 5:25.

At the fire (πρὸς τὸ φῶς)

Φῶς is never used of the fire itself, but of the light of the fire; and this is the point to which the evangelist directs attention: that the firelight, shining on Peter's face, called forth the challenge of the maid (Mark 14:66).
