This confrontation with Peter could have happened before the Jerusalem council in Acts 15:1,2; however the Galatians record indicates the error on Peter’s part, followed the decision of the Jerusalem council and Peter perceived the grace given to Paul (Galatians 2:9) which makes his error remarkable!
When did this confrontation occur? Paul’s next visit to Antioch is recorded in Acts 18:22, 23. This is the beginning of his second itinerary. And this is the next time Paul was at Antioch, when Peter could have been there with him. Paul’s second itinerary takes him through Galatia over to Macedonia and Greece. At that time a gist is recorded in the end of Acts 15, John Mark and Barnabus sail for Cyprus. Paul chose Silas and they departed to Syria and Cilicia.
