This article shows how Philo of Alexandria and the author of the Gospel of John represented Moses in contrasting ways within Hellenistic Judaism. It then argues that John's portrayal of Moses constitutes a contradiction to Philo's portrayal (and vice versa), suggesting that Philo and John represent two competing Moses traditions within first-century Judaism.
