James or Peter?

>The leader of the earliest church was James. See Paul's letters and Acts!
Wrong. Galatians 2:9 and Acts 15 says that at first meeting at Jerusalem,
the leaders of the the church was James, Peter and John. Acts 15 show the
intervention of Peter (v.7), Barnabe and Paul (v.12) and James (v.13). So
was recogniced as one of the leaders of the church at Jerusalem and then
James was not the only leader of the earliest church. James was also
recogniced as one of the leaders of the church of Jerusalem at Acts 21:18.
