I recently had an opportunity to meet a few people who read the Highlights. There's nothing like face to face contact.

Who Is Jesus and Why Does It Matter?
During the first Webcast, Dr. Deepak Chopra and Rev. Wendy Craig-Purcell discuss the following sections of the book:
Redeeming the Redeemer [Pages 7-20]
Who Is the "Real" Jesus? [Pages 129-139]
Questions for Personal Reflection:
What do you find most striking about Chopras descriptions of the three Jesuses?
What are your thoughts on this idea that Jesus was an enlightened master such as Buddha or the Vedic sages?
If Jesus was an enlightened master, what do you think this might mean for Christianity?
Respond to the notion that a persons level of consciousness impacts their interpretation of the message.
Did you find any of the five arguments[Page 130] of who the "real" Jesus is surprising? Did you find that you had strong feelings one way or the other about any of these? Why do you think that is? How has your personal religious background impacted your spiritual beliefs today? Does it make reading a book like this a breath of fresh air or does it bring up less positive feelings? Do you experience inner conflict when you consider the idea of the third Jesus?
