Abstract :
The article shows that the narrative of Acts 10,1-11,18 is rightly summarized as conversion. Peter did not demand that Cornelius and his household be circumcised, which meant that their conversion did not consist in becoming Jews and subjects of the Mosaic law. With regard to the Mosaic Law the Peter of Acts 10-11 took the same position as the letters of Paul: should we infer that this Peter was Pauline? But the synkrisis in Acts requires a reverse interpretation of the Peter-Paul relationship: it is not Peter who is Pauline but Paul who is Petrine in the view of the Narrator.
