Peter was the working man's prophet. He was a hands on believer and a man diligent in faith and therefore in actions. 2 Peter tells us of the progression of faith.
Simon Peter, Simeon, or Simōn, according to the New Testament, was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus Christ, leaders of the early Christian Church. He is also the "Apostle of the Apostles", an honor 3rd-century theologian Hippolytus of Rome gave him.

James was probably the head of the Church at first until he was murdered in Jerusalem. The actual head of the Church held that position because they were the best servant of servants. It was not a position that exercised authority or dictated doctrine.

The Church was a different form of government that operated by the perfect law of liberty and the apostles provided a daily ministration through a network of ministers who operated a system of charity that was the corban that made the word of God to effect and the prayers of the true Christians and followers of The Way of Christ heard again because it was based on righteousness instead of force as John the Baptist told us from the beginning.
