Jesus = Moses?

The message of the NT is that the One who spoke on the plains of Moab is none other than Jesus Christ, Yahweh incarnate in human form.
--Daniel I. Block, "Deuteronomy," in Theological Interpretation of the Old Testament: A Book-by-Book Survey (ed. Kevin J. Vanhoozer; Grand Rapids: Baker, 2005), 75.

Is that really the message of the NT? Jesus spoke the words of Deuteronomy to the Israelites about to enter the Promised Land? Moses was an incarnation of the Second Person of the Trinity? Am I misreading this?
