Publication: 1614

Philo’s writings reflect Jewish life and experiences outside Judea in the first few decades of the Common Era. In this treatise on the life of Moses, Philo retells the biblical narrative with significant omissions and additions and a focus on the inner minds of his characters. Philo’s premise is that the Mosaic law rests on reason. He presents Moses as a philosopher-king, a lawgiver, a high priest and a prophet.
