According to Leadbeater Jesus is one of the seven Adepts who are heads of the seven Rays. Jesus is ruling the Ray of devotion. And according to Leadbeater Jesus did take birth and Lord Maitreya taught through him. Arundale also wrote the same.
I think year of Jesus' birth is not so important. Important thing is Jesus existed and he gave great teaching.
I am greatly impressed by wisdom and consistency in the New Testament. After studying New Testament I don't think that it is a story made by somebody.
Somebody may make a chart with five columns Blavatsky, Leadbeater, Hodson, Besant, Arundale. And each column may contain writings about Jesus by respective authors. This will enable comparison.

And some readers understood it in a sense that there was no Christ and were offended, aking me, why did I publush such an atheistic article, while the others, who earlier understood Blavatsky in that sense that there was no Christ thought that the author misinterpreted her by admitting his existense!
> Next to it I've placed the article by Hodson about Master Jesus, in order to show, how very different methods of research lead to the same conclusions; and again there were some who accepted these two articles differently, and there were even those who asserted that Hodson has plagiarized Talmud!
