Mark 14:54

Peter had followed him afar off (Ho Petrov apo makroten hkolouthsen autwi).
Here Mark uses the constative aorist (hkolouthsen) where Matthew 26:58, and Luke 22:54 have the picturesque imperfect (hkoloutei), was following. Possibly Mark did not care to dwell on the picture of Peter furtively following at a distance, not bold enough to take an open stand with Christ as the Beloved Disciple did, and yet unable to remain away with the other disciples.

Was sitting with (hn sunkathmenov).
Periphrastic imperfect middle, picturing Peter making himself at home with the officers (uphretwn), under rowers, literally, then servants of any kind. John 18:25 describes Peter as standing (estwv). Probably he did now one, now the other, in his restless weary mood.

Warming himself in the light (termainomenov prwv to pwv).
Direct middle. Fire has light as well as heat and it shone in Peter's face. He was not hidden as much as he supposed he was.
