Lemme just transcribe what S/B say.

"Der 'zweit-erste' Sabbat (Gegensatz: 'zweit-letzter' Sabbat) bedeutt einen
Sabat, der der zweite ist in einer Reihe von Sabbaten, deren Zaehlung vom
ersten Sabbat an beginnt.  Schon diese Wortbedeutung von 'deuteroprwtos'
verbietet, in Lk 6,1 an den 1. Sabbat nach dem 2. Passahtag... zu denken."   

The quote continues with some technical details and then suggests...

"In Uebereinstimmung mit Vorstehenden uebersetzt Delitzsch,... 'en sabbatw
deuteroprwtw' mit : 'beshabath hashinith lesiphiroth ha'amar'"


Sure enough it is an unusual Greek word--- but it makes perfect sense in a
Semitic context.  Perfect sense.

Best,

Jim
