Jeff is a son of the living Placer, inspired to publish words of Placer. In younger days he attended a university for a year, but then realized he had other fish to fry, one of them being to discover the true meaning, purpose, and goal of existence. Being a believer of the Bible since childhood, Jeff was sometimes tormented and depressed, thinking many people would some day be “eternally lost, tormented forever and ever.” He thought this because that’s what his Bible and Christian teachers taught him. In his late forties he was blessed to discover his Bible had some significant translation errors in it.
At that time, reading the sub-linear ultra-literal translation of the Concordant Greek Text published by Concordant Publishing Concern, Jeff began to drink the clean water that inspired the original writings. He continued this for more than a decade, forming his own sentences and choosing words that seemed most appropriate to him, resulting in the New Testament you see at this site. In his words: “Though it has involved some struggles for me, this project has been a spiritual drink of clean water, a breath of fresh air, an illumination and confirmation that ‘the one creating the all’ is also ‘the one operating the all’ . . . that he, ‘the Placer, may be all in all.’ Thus, ‘all is working together into good,’ for not only the ones being presently called, but for all, the entire creation, which ‘shall also be freed from the slavery of the corruption, into the freedom of the glory of the Placer’s offspring.’ Having been immersed in these transformative writings for some time, the spirit that inspired them now fulfills me beyond description. I would recommend this to anyone anywhere. Does the Placer engage in ‘eternal punishment,’ or is it ‘durative chastening,’ with a view toward correction and reconciliation? ‘For the Placer locks the all together into stubbornness, that he may be mercying the all.’ ”
He claims that to the best of his ability, with the publications available, this New Testament is true to some respected Greek manuscripts, yet still readable and understandable, even with its unconventional words, grammar, punctuation, etc. Jeff still enjoys reading this New Testament, making changes as the spirit leads.
