I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “Feast”  from the New Testament (KJV).

they make broad their phylacteries,
and enlarge the borders of their garments,

and the chief seats in the synagogues,

and to be called of men,
Rabbi, Rabbi.

and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.

lest there be an uproar among the people.

the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him,
Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?

to release unto the people a prisoner,
whom they would.

Mar 12:39 And the chief seats in the synagogues,
and the uppermost rooms at feasts:

and of unleavened bread:
and the chief priests and the scribes sought
how they might take him by craft,
and put  him to death.

every year at the feast of the passover.

call the poor,
the maimed,
the lame,
the blind:

Luk 20:46 Beware of the scribes,
which desire to walk in long robes,

the same shall receive greater damnation.

Draw out now,
and bear unto the governor of the feast.

(but the servants which drew the water knew;)
the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,

in the feast  day,
many believed in his name,
when they saw the miracles which he did.

the Galilaeans received him,
having seen all the things
that he did at Jerusalem at the feast:

and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

a feast of the Jews, was nigh.

then went he also up unto the feast,
not openly,
but as it were in secret.

Jesus went up into the temple,

as they stood in the temple,
What think ye,
that he will not come to the feast?

when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,

13. Took branches of palm trees,
and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna:
Blessed  is the King of Israel
that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Joh 12:20 And there were certain Greeks among them
that came up to worship at the feast:

21. The same came therefore to Philip,
which was of Bethsaida of Galilee,
and desired him, saying,
Sir, we would see Jesus.

Joh 13:1 Now before the feast of the passover,
when Jesus knew that his hour was come
that he should depart out of this world unto the Father,
having loved his own which were in the world,
he loved them unto the end.

Joh 13:29 For some  of them thought,
because Judas had the bag,
that Jesus had said unto him,
Buy those things that we have need of against the feast;
or, that he should give something to the poor.

Act 18:21 But bade them farewell, saying,
I must by all means keep this feast that cometh in Jerusalem:
but I will return again unto you,
if God will.
And he sailed from Ephesus.

1Co 5:8 Therefore let us keep the feast,
not with old leaven,
neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness;
but with the unleavened  bread of sincerity and truth.

1Co 10:27 If any of them that believe not bid you  to a feast,
and ye be disposed to go;
whatsoever is set before you, eat,
asking no question for conscience sake.

2Pe 2:13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness,
as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time.
Spots  they are and blemishes,
sporting themselves with their own deceivings
while they feast with you;

Jud 1:12 These are spots in your feasts of charity,
when they feast with you,
feeding themselves without fear:
clouds  they are without water,
carried about of winds;
trees whose fruit withereth,
without fruit,
twice dead,
plucked up by the roots;
