In my study I was interested in determining whether or not Peter was presented as leader among the apostles by Christ, by Peter himself, by the other apostles, and by references throughout the New Testament. Of further interest was the discovery of the particular areas in which Peter expressed his leadership and the extent to which this leadership applied. I was eager to learn when in Peter's career his leadership role was especially ·prominent. Finally, it was of interest to note what limitations, if any, there were on Peter's leadership among the apostles.
