If you'd ever like to explore a topic throughout the Bible, the simplest way is by using a concordance, which is essentially a collection of all the verses related to a specific topic. Think of it like a Bible GPS. On our site, we have a handful of concordances to help you in your study.
So, for example, if you're looking for verses about thanksgiving, you could zip over to Torrey's New Topical Textbook ("topical" usually means you're dealing with a concordance). Click "T" from the alphabetical index at the top, and then click "Thanksgiving." (Tip: You could just type "thanksgiving" in our search box, which cuts out all these steps.)
From there, you'll see how the concept is used in the Bible. Like this:
Christ set an example of
The heavenly host engaged in
Is a good thing
And that's just the warmup. You'll find much more where that came from.
