Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentMark 14:69
- To them that stood by (toiv parestwsin).
- This talk about Peter was overheard by him. "This fellow (outov) is one of them." So in verse 70 the talk is directly to Peter as in Matthew 26:73, but in Luke 22:59 it is about him. Soon the bystanders (oi parestwtev) will join in the accusation to Peter (verse 70; Matthew 26:73), with the specially pungent question in John 18:26 which was the climax. See on "Mt 26:69"-75 for discussion of similar details.
