Luke 4:16

The words “on the Sabbath day” are translated from the Greek words ∈ν τη ηµ∈ρα των σαββατων A literal translation would be, “Now on the day of the sabbaths”; or, “Now on the day of the weeks.” The use of the Greek των σαββατων, meaning “Sabbaths” or “weeks,” indicates that this verse is referring to the day of Pentecost. Because this day is observed after counting a period of seven full weeks, it was known in New Testament times as “the day of the weeks.” The day of Pentecost does not fall on the weekly Sabbath but is an annual Sabbath.
