Calvin started to experience a Protestant conversion, which he states in the introduction to his book Commentary on Pslams written later in 1557. If the Church did perish and the Protestant reformers were the ones to truly resuscitate the Church back to a true state, that would make them greater than the Apostles. God is a God of intelligence, so He reveals Himself in an intelligent manner, in a way that we can understand.
