Peter is the visible head of the entire Church

TR:
No, didn’t suggest anything like that at all.

Jews were the first Christians.
Peter was the apostle to the Jews..(according to the Bible)
Is the current Pope the “apostle” to the Jews or the Gentiles?

The answer is obvious:
the answer is Gentiles.

From New Advent
Gentiles:
A word of Latin origin and usually employed in the plural. In the English versions of both Testaments it collectively designates the nations distinct from the Jewish people

As to OP was about the differences between the Pope and Peter:
are you disagreeing with this?

Peter was an apostle to the Jews (not Gentiles)
The Pope is not an apostle to the Jews.

Wow? Really?

Peter was an Apostle to the Jews and Gentiles. Have you not read in Scripture?

Acts 15:7
And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.


Now, what does that mean? That doesn’t mean that St. Peter is a Gentile. And since he is also the Apostle to the Jews, that doesn’t mean that he is a Jew. He is a Christian who evangelizes to Jews and Gentiles. The Pope does the same today. He evangelizes to Jews and Gentiles alike.  He is the visible head of the entire Church.

Sincerely,

De Maria
