Louis H. Feldman connects Hebrews 11:24 with the 1st-century Jewish writer Philo.
Here is a quote from an article called Philo's View of Moses Birth and Upbringing which is published in the Catholic Biblical Quarterly, April 2002.
Moses, even though he was the exceedingly prosperous heir apparent to the throne who was regularly called the young king, showed zeal for the culture of his kinsmen and ancestors. On the one hand, he regarded the good fortune of his adopters as spurious; and on the other hand, though his natural parents were less distinguished, he looked upon them as his own and genuine. (Philo Mos. 1.6.31-7.32)
According to Feldman, Philo emphasizes that Moses gave up everything he had for his people when he could have easily stayed in the lap of luxury.
