Q&A

Did St. Peter view his authority as equal to other Church leaders?

Question:

How can you say Peter had authority over other church leaders when he referred to himself as only their "fellow elder" (1 Pt 5:1). This proves Peter did not see himself as having any "primacy" in the Church. He was just a presbyter.
