The Disobedient Son

One of the harshest judgments in the Torah is the prescribed sentence for a disobedient son. When a son will not obey his parents, the Torah tells them to bring the son before the elders which will result in the son’s death through stoning. Many parents today might remember times when their sons, usually when they were teenagers, flat out refused to obey. However, the irrevocable punishment of stoning would not occur to us; instead we are horrified at the thought of putting a son to death. When does the behavior of a son cross over this line and be deserving of this harsh punishment? What does this judgment have to do with Israel and Yeshua?
