Chapter Summary

Sorting out the relationships between Peter and James is complicated by their constantly appearing in their distinctive trajectories to be out a half step off from one another, even as they remain comparable. Both find themselves in Jerusalem after experiences of the resurrection, but the Temple that is the focus of James seems only a point of departure for Peter, and a locum that for Paul seems redefined in the apocalypse of the Christ. The largest question that remains unresolved by the Consultation is whether the cooperation and conflict among James, Peter, and Paul were more like competing and contradictory claims on the inheritance of Jesus or streams within a single movement. Pentecost is the most notable feast of Peter and his circle. Many of the issues that appear under the surface in the comparison of James and Peter become explicit when Paul is introduced into the equation.
