The Papacy and the Orthodox

This chapter discusses the portrayal of Peter in the gospels and epistles, asking how events from 50 to 120 AD shaped the memory of Peter in the various churches of the New Testament. As soon becomes obvious, the portrait of Peter is not completely consistent throughout the New Testament and undergoes certain changes or adaptations depending on the needs of the individual biblical author. Of course, in any study of Peter in the New Testament particular attention must be given to both Matthew 16:13–20 and John 21:15–17, the two texts cited by Roman Catholics as the biblical basis for the papacy.
