The 248 positive commandments are compared to the 248 bones (Zohar 1:170b). Chazal provide a list of these 248 bones (Oholos 1:8).

The 365 negative commandments are compared to the 365 sinews (Zohar ibid.). Is there a similar list among ma'amarei Chazal that lists these 365 sinews?

  • @ezra I'd say it's basically a duplicate, since it's asking exactly half if that question (just the 365 instead of the whole 613). Jun 19 '17 at 21:23
  • @IsaacKotlicky I'm not asking about a list that someone compiled to match up to the mitzvos. I'm asking specifically about sources in Chazal that provide a list. Highly related, but I'm not sure if that's enough of a nuance to make a difference, as an answer to that may not answer this one.

  • The source provided in the answer in that question seems to specifically state that they used the known sources from Chazal. So aren't you basically asking us to decompile that book and sort out their "original" content from the sources they used? Jun 19 '17 at 23:59
  • @IsaacKotlicky Technically yes. But the fact that an answer there happens to answer this one doesn't make this a dupe; that would be if an answer there must answer this one, which it doesn't.
