Are the Beta Israel texts Mota Musa, and Mota Aron the midrashim Petirat Moshe and Petirat Aharon, a retelling of the same content, or some other texts?

Im not sure if the following will be your complete answer but it will probably give you some hint on the matter.

Its the book: "The Asatir, the Samaritan book of the "Secrets of Moses":Gaster, Moses, 1856-1939. p 178 and further.

  • Are you saying that "Mota Musa" is "The Asatir"? Have you read both? – Kinnard Hockenhull Sep 20 '16 at 14:56
  • No, I only read "The Asatir". – mendy Sep 20 '16 at 15:57
  • So how do you know they are related? – Kinnard Hockenhull Sep 20 '16 at 16:10

  • But they may be completely unrelated. Is there a reason you think they are related other than them both focusing on Moses? – Kinnard Hockenhull Sep 20 '16 at 16:22
