Why do you think Peter denied Jesus?
Peter was terrified. He had already cut off the right ear of Malchus, the high priest`s servant and perhaps was fearing reprisal for that. But I think events were happening so incredibly fast and beyond Peter`s control - maybe he thought by saving himself, he could be of more use to Jesus, although I think he was just scared and alone.

Why do you think Peter denied Jesus?
Peter denied Jesus because he was put to a tight situation of answering the questions in the presence of the officers and other servants. He as also afraid of being caught with Jesus and he was ashamed of what has happened.

Why do you think Peter denied Jesus?
He was scared that he might be persecuted and arrested too. Jesus came to proclaim the truth openly in full light and so calls the disciples to proclaim it in the same way. Evil looks for hiding places like Peter is doing now. Jesus stood up for the truth till the end.So he is not breaking the OT commandment about stating the false. That`s why Annas and Caiphas are wrong in beating him on that ground. They are breaking the law here. And Peter too but in all the emotional turmoil in the panic he was confused and scared. Like the other disciples tehy were verty close emotionally to Jesus and could never really understand that that had to happen to their beloved rabbi.Not until he broke the bread in their presnece and all clicked together. Annas and Caiphas are in a position of power and their actions are calmly performed. They are applying the law. Then Peter repented.

Peter's First Denial

Simon Peter followed Jesus, as did another disciple. Now that disciple was known to the high priest, and entered in with Jesus into the court of the high priest; but Peter was standing at the door outside. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to her who kept the door, and brought in Peter. Then the maid who kept the door said to Peter, "Are you also one of this man's disciples?"
He said, "I am not."
Now the servants and the officers were standing there, having made a fire of coals, for it was cold. They were warming themselves. Peter was with them, standing and warming himself.
