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.
