Basic philosophical questions are asked and answered regarding free choice – if God doesn’t want people worshipping idols, then why doesn’t God destroy them? The last section of Masechet Avoda Zara deals with wine of non-Jews and the first question addressed is at what stage does the wine become potential to the wine of libations and therefore forbidden to get benefit? Can a Jew work in the winepress treading on the grapes? An additional issue is raised regarding a rabbinic decree not to allow fruits of Israel to become impure.
