Galatians 2:7 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
The gospel of the uncircumcision - The duty of preaching the gospel to the uncircumcised part of the world; that is, to the Gentiles Paul had received this as his unique office when he was converted and called to the ministry (see Acts 9:15; Acts 22:21); and they now perceived that he had been specially intrusted with this office, from the remarkable success which had attended his labors. It is evidently not meant here that Paul was to preach only to the Gentiles and Peter only to the Jews, for Paul often preached in the synagogues of the Jews, and Peter was the first who preached to a Gentile Acts 10; but it is meant that it was the main business of Paul to preach to the Gentiles, or that this was especially entrusted to him.
As the gospel of the circumcision - As the office of preaching the gospel to the Jews.

1 Corinthians 9:17
For if I do this voluntarily, I have a reward; but if against my will, I have a stewardship entrusted to me.
I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel;
to reveal His Son in me so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with flesh and blood,
Then three years later I went up to Jerusalem to become acquainted with Cephas, and stayed with him fifteen days.
and recognizing the grace that had been given to me, James and Cephas and John, who were reputed to be pillars, gave to me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, so that we might go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised.
But when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned.
