Hi Otared and Gerben,

I do not know which version of TeXShop you are using but the more recent ones
have Engines for ConTeXt, already.

If they are not already installed you can find them in:

just more the Contex( LuaTeX).engine into Engines and restart

Here is the engine definition for MacTeX 2014 (TeXLive)

# Before using this engine, you must run the following command once in Terminal: luatools --generate

set path= ($path /usr/texbin /usr/local/bin)
mtxrun --script context --autogenerate --synctex=1 "$1"

No need to Source setuptex.
Just set the Path to your ConTeXt Standalone directory
 The setuptex script is a multi-platform script to setup the paths!
