More stories are told about the greatness of some of the Rabbis.  Raba bar Nachmani’s tragic death is recounted and how it related to the need for him in the heavens to resolve a debate between God and the “Rabbis” in the yeshiva in the heavens.  The gemara then gets back to the mishna and issues of minhag hamokom and the story in the mishna about the Rabbi’s son who promised the workers food and from there diverges into a long discussion about the story of Avraham and the angels.
