There's been a recent thread on this; see the archives. Strack-Billerbeck
say that it indicates "a Sabbath which comes second in a series of
Sabbaths, the numbering of which begins with the first Sabbath....
"The situation of Luke 6:1, the time when the corn was ripe, requires
us to think of a series of Sabbaths which lay in the neighbourhood of
the Passover. At this time the days and weeks were numbered, according
to Leviticus 23:15f., and so were the Sabbaths between Easter and
Whitsuntide. So the 'second-first' Sabbath would mean the second Sabbath
after the 15th Nisan, the 'first Sabbath' being that which fell in
Passover Week itself. The numbering of the days between Easter and
Whitsuntide [sic] began on the evening of the 15th Nisan with the
commencement of the 16th Nisan" (Strack und Billerbeck, /Das Evangelium
nach Lukas/, Mu"nchen, 1924, E.T., ad loc).
