Does John Calvin really link straight to the Apostle Paul?

    "Augustine is so wholly with me, that if I wished to write a confession of my faith, I could do so with all fulness and satisfaction to myself out of his writings."

    John Calvin, “A Treatise on the Eternal Predestination of God,” in John Calvin, Calvin’s Calvinism , trans. Henry Cole (Grandville, MI: Reformed Free Publishing Association, 1987), 38; cited in Vance, Other Side , 38.

    Could this mean that he self-describedly links to the Gospel through the Apostle Peter?

    maybe augustine was one of the few that offered any teaching at all.

    I'm confused. The topic references Paul, the quote Augustine, and the question reverts to Peter.

    I guess I'm missing something.

    I don't understand the phrase 'link to the gospel' either.
