- Purim marks the deliverance of the Jews through Jewish Queen Esther

- Leviticus 23 is sometimes called "God's calendar of redeeming grace" because of 44 verses that tell of God's redemptive plan
- God told Moses that seven of the feasts were to be "appointed feasts of the Lord" and were to be proclaimed as sacred assemblies (Leviticus 23: 1, 2)
- Three of the feasts were pilgrimage feasts
