About this Journal
Neotestamentica is the journal of the New Testament Society of Southern Africa (NTSSA), which has been published annually since 1966 and currently provides two issues per annum. The journal publishes original articles in English on all aspects of the New Testament, ranging from exegetical and historical to hermeneutical and methodological studies. The journal showcases South African and African scholarship, including the publishing of contributions from the annual conference of the NTSSA. With the majority of subscribers representing international libraries in some of the prestigious universities worldwide, submissions by international experts in the field of New Testament are also welcomed and customarily make up half of the articles published per issue. A critical book review section is included in each issue. The editor of Neotestamentica is assisted by the editorial board and international advisory board. The New Testament Society of Southern Africa was founded in 1965 by eleven scholars in the town of Potchefstroom in South Africa. The first issue of meeting proceedings appeared in 1966. A year later, in 1967, the first proper issue of Neotestamentica, the Society’s journal, appeared. Over the years the Society has crossed denominational, cultural and gender boundaries. It currently has 175 members, the majority of which reside in South Africa, but 17 members are from other African countries and 20 reside overseas. The purpose of the Society is to encourage, develop and support scholarship and research in the field of the New Testament and related disciplines in general, and specifically within the South African context, to stimulate effective teaching, to promote publication in the field, and to offer its members opportunities for mutual support, intellectual growth, and professional development.
