Chapter Summary

James is mentioned three times in Paul's letter to the Galatians, and once in 1 Corinthians. This chapter proceeds to an in-depth analysis of the relevant portions of the text of Galatians 1-2, taking up these three references to James in the order in which they appear in Paul's account. It purposes to set the stage for a critical assessment of the supplementary but later tradition concerning James and his relationship to the church in Antioch, preserved in the Acts of the Apostles. The chapter also purposes to set the stage for a critical assessment of the significance of the witness of Ignatius of Antioch to the effect that for the Church of Antioch and the churches of Asia Minor Peter and Paul were the two chief apostles. Historians offer no explanation for the evidence of some profound "togetherness" of Peter's and Paul's martyrdoms.
