In Luke 24:1, the phrase 'TH DE MIA TWN SABATWN' is discriptive of the time and seasons. both TH + MIA are feminine, meaning 'on the first' .. SABBATWN is neuter, so it does not refer to the first sabbath, rather it is referring to the first ('HMERA)DAY, which a fem. noun to be modified by the fem TH MIA. When we see the plural in Luke 24:1, it is in the GNT. The day was also the first day of the feast of weeks. Jesus rose from the grave on the 'first day of Pentecost' which is the 'feast of weeks' a 7 week sabbath followed by a high sabbath. That might be the reason for the plural usage and as we know, Luke searched things out and tried to be as accurate as possible.
