end quote.

Have you read Deouteronomy 31:9 closely?
What did he write?
The law???
How do you say 'law' in hebrew?
Isn't it something like 'torah'?
And the name of the book attributed to Moshe?
The torah???

My! What an amazing coincidence!!!

Tradition doesn't matter a tinker's tin. 

There are three places where Moses is said to have written something- Ex 
24:4, Dt 31:9, 31:22.  An even not so careful reading will show that the 
reference to Moses writing refers only to the present pericope.
