Actually, the "second sabbath" makes perfect sense and describes, quite
simply, the fact that in the Jewish calendar it is possible for two sabbaths
to fall in one week.  I.e., the regular sabbath and occasionally a special
sabbath (like Yom Kippur or Passover).  Obviously, when a sabbath like
passover occurs on a Wednesday or such, there are 2 sabbath's in the week.

See the very thorough discussion in Strack-Billerbeck's Kommentar, vol 2, p.
158.
