Tony, Bart Ehrman (If I can trust my memory) recently wrote an article
presenting the case that Cephas and Petros were two differenct people. His
evidence, as I recall, came from a later period. I can't remember where
that article appeared (maybe JBL).
I also remember that back in the 50's & 60's a couple of commentators
argued that there was an interpolation into this passage by one of Paul's
friends in Galatia that included verses 3-8. The use of the name Petros in
that section and the desparaging parenthesis in verse 6 was part of the
evidence. They argued that what Paul wrote of the account of the conference
This does not take into consideration the rather disparaging reference to
Cephas in 11-14.
I am at home and do not have access to my notes to see who made these
