228 - TRANSGRESSORS OF CERTAIN COMMANDMENTS TO BE PUT TO DEATH BY BURNING


Leviticus 20:14 -- “If a man marries a woman and her mother, it is wickedness. They shall be burned with fire, both he and they, that there may be no wickedness among you.”

A complete list of the commandments for which death by burning is the penalty is to be found in “Mishneh Torah”.*

* Mishneh Torah, Shoftim, Hilchoth Sanhedrin XV, 11

According to the Mishnah, the penalty of death by burning was carried out by pouring molten lead into the mouth of the condemned, thus burning his entrails.*
