This article reflects on the role that Neotestamentica and colleagues of the New Testament Society of South Africa (NTSSA) have played in the academic life of the author. It began with the “Club of Ten” established with the aim of enabling attendance of international conferences. His research and broadening of interests were stimulated, more especially, through the cooperation in subgroups of the Society, resulting in the hosting of conference themes. Different phases in the changing scene of biblical interpretation are linked to publications, very often in Neotestamentica. As international contacts were actively cultivated by NTSSA members, increasing especially after 1994, collaboration between local and international colleagues (some of whom were in fact South Africans and members of the NTSSA teaching abroad) resulted in special conferences and dedicated publications.
