A story is brought about Onkelos the convert and how he was supposed to be brought before the caesar but instead he kept convincing all the troops who came to seize him to convert to Judaism. What is the basis of the argument between Rabbi Meir and the rabbis regarding whether it is forbidden to do business with idol worshippers on the day of the death of their king only if there is burning or even if there is not. How does that connect with the braita that says the Jews burn the items of a king and it is not forbidden because it is the way of the non Jews? Other holiday questions are raised regarding cases in the mishna and also about other holidays not mentioned in the mishna.
