Bible verses about Peter Designated as First
(From Forerunner Commentary)

Matthew 10:2

Peter is the only one designated as the first. He is not only named first, he is called "the first" by Matthew, who was also an apostle—and an apostle ought to know who his human leader is.

Matthew 16:16-18

It is Peter who most frequently responds and answers for the group. A reader of the Gospels almost begins to picture, when Jesus asks a question, that the other disciples glance over to Peter to see whether he will respond. It is almost as if they defer to him. Though this is not specifically written in Scripture, it seems to be their thinking regarding him.

Galatians 2:6-7

From the New Testament Commentary:

It is clear that equal honor is accorded to Paul and Peter. Now since in this combination nothing is said about John, whereas we know nevertheless that Paul's designation "those of repute," a term borrowed from the Judaizers, included John, it would appear to be a fair conclusion that Peter represents the twelve, including John. That among the twelve Peter was recognized leader is shown by the fact that in every list of apostles his name is mentioned first of all. That the Lord had been at work energetically operative in connection with Peter, and this especially in connection with the latter's apostolic mission activity for the Jews is clear from many passages. That the same Lord who empowered Peter was also energizing Paul, but in his especially apostolic activity was now being made clear at Jerusalem, where in both private interview and public gathering, Paul and Barnabas gave a rundown of the astonishing results that had been accomplished.
