The New Testament also con-tributes some valuable notices, especially Acts VII and HebrewsXI.

Next to them in value, but next at an interval that is scarcelymeasurable, come the accounts given by Josephus and Philo.Moses is the hero of Josephuss Second, Third, and Fourth Books, which present to us the circumstances of his life with a considerable amount of detail, but do not add very much to thescriptural narrative, except at the two extremes of Mosescareer, his early years and his decease.

Different estimatesmay be formed of the degree of credit to be attached tothese portions of Josephuss history, and it requires, beyond adoubt, much critical acumen to deal with them properly, neitheraccepting nor rejecting them In bloc. The writers strongconviction has been that it is from Scripture, almost entirely, ifnot entirely, that we must learn the facts of Moses life, anddeduce our estimate of his character.

He believes that in thefour later Books of the Pentateuch we have an actual, thoughnot an intentional, autobiography. Without going the lengthof saying that the whole of Deuteronomy is the composition ofMoses, he regards it as a faithful report of discourses held byMoses during the later portion of his life.
