There were 613 laws in the Law of Moses. 611 is the numerical equivalent of “Torah”. Add to this the command to Adam (Be fruitful and multiply) and the law of circumcision (to Abraham), and the whole make up 613. Rabbinic schools researched on the greatest commandment, that is, the commandment that includes all others. Jesus’ answer is derived from two texts, one from Deuteronomy and the other from Leviticus. He says the whole Law and the Prophets depend on these two commandments.
