'Festival' in the Bible
Every year Jesus' parents would go to Jerusalem for the Passover Festival.
When Jesus was twelve years old, they went up to the festival as usual.
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.
Now the Festival of Unleavened Bread, which is called the Passover, was near.
Then the day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread came, on which the Passover lamb was to be sacrificed.
