Perhaps the author of ''H'' thought all this story inconsistent with Acts (Acts of the Apostles), and omitted it. In the Letter of Peter to James, Peter makes clear the importance of preaching "to those who are worthy and to no one else" with emphasis on keeping the Law of Moses and on opposing the man Peter refers to as "the man who is my enemy."
