Why James?

Listen to this 3-minute excerpt of an audio message* by Bro Ron Knight to understand why James came to the forefront in Jerusalem and Peter’s role diminished  after the mystery was revealed to Paul.

Acts 21:17-18
And when we were come to Jerusalem, the brethren received us gladly.  And the day following Paul went in with us unto James; and all the elders were present.

Acts 15:12-13
Then all the multitude kept silence, and gave audience to Barnabas and Paul, declaring what miracles and wonders God had wrought among the Gentiles by them.  And after they had held their peace, James answered, saying, Men and brethren, hearken unto me:

Galatians 2:9
And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.
