The Way of the Saints

St. Peter and St. Paul

This sculpture shows the effort of the early church to maintain unity while developing and adjusting customs not essential to the faith. The two apostles, St. Peter and St. Paul, are discussing the question: Should Gentile converts be required to follow the Mosaic Rite of circumcision, diet and other customs?

The question had already been settled at the Council of Jerusalem, but Peter did not always follow the agreement in practice. He endorsed the Jewish practice when among the Hebrews, but not when among Gentile converts.

 

St Peter and St Paul sculpture at Trinity Heights

This interaction is based on Galatians 2:10-15. Paul confronts Peter in Antioch for "dissembling about the truth of the Gospel."

Christ brought a new covenant for all peoples.
