Compare Anand's & Leadbeater's Words

Anand wrote in part:

Although story of Christ can be used as allegory to explain soul's
condition....If somebody is saying that Jesus did not exist
physically, AS WRITTEN IN THE GOSPELS, I DON'T agree with it. I think
reader will benefit more if he considers Jesus AS TRUE and tries to
live teaching, instead of involving in ALLEGORIES....

caps added. Notice Anand's words: AS WRITTEN IN THE GOSPELS

Yet C.W. Leadbeater who Anand has repeatedly proclaimed as the greatest
occultist-saint wrote:

Certainly the Christian Bible ought NOT to be taken LITERALLY, for
many of its statements are symbolical, and others are simply not
true. When we examine clairvoyantly the life of the Founder of
Christianity, for example, we can find NO TRACE of the ALLEGED twelve
apostles, it would seem that as men they NEVER existed, but that they
were introduced into the story for some reason ? possibly to typify
the twelve signs of the zodiac....THE TRUTH IS that the four gospels
at any rate were NEVER intended to be taken as in any sense HISTORICAL....

Without the 12 Apostles being real person, how much of the Gospels
and story of the early Christian church remain as real actual history?

If twelve apostles didn't exist, did Jesus?

Food for thought.
