'Festival' in the Bible
Every year His parents traveled to Jerusalem for the Passover Festival.
When He was 12 years old, they went up according to the custom of the festival.
When the days of the festival were over, they left for home. The young man Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but his parents did not know it.
But he answered his father, "Listen! All these years I've worked like a slave for you. I've never disobeyed a command of yours. Yet you've never given me so much as a young goat for a festival so I could celebrate with my friends.
