I can't help wondering because Leadbeater was a consecrated "Bishop" in a main stream Religion prior to his having exposure to Theosophy. Are we to believe that he also told his "Flock" back then from his Church Pulpit on Sundays the self same proclamations?

C.W. Leadbeater tells his readers: 

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 â 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....
