Paul received his authority from Peter and James. He was sent to the Gentiles, but Peter had the universal order to wield the keys and "feed the lambs".

Is that why Paul had to confront Peter about his hypocrisy? Is that why God had to give peter a vision about the unclean becoming clean? The gentiles were infidels in the eyes of Peter until God gave him the vision. Paul was called to the gentiles while peter was called to the Jews.
Paul received his authority from Peter and James.
Nonsense. Paul went preaching for three years before he even met Peter. Paul never states that he was ordained by Peter. Instead he states that God called him.

***Paul received his authority from Peter and James. ***
I believe Paul got his authority directly from GOD himself.
Gal 1:11 ¶ But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.
Gal 1:12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught [it], but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.
Paul did get the approval of Peter and James.
