      Dear David,
      The terms old priestly 'calendar' and the Pharisaic calender with regard
      to Shavuoth are frequently used.
      1. There is no dispute re. the fact that the Boethusians defended the
      priestly calendar and that at some time the dates of Shavuoth were
      replaced by the Pharisaic counting of the fifty days. The temple then
      still stood and in the Talmud the Pharisaic counting of the Omer
      beginning with Nisan 16 still prevails. The question is WHEN the
      official celebrations began on Nisan 16 which is not necessarily a
      Sunday.
      Of course,thare were other halakhic controversies in the First Century
      between Boethusians and Pharisees.
      2. This is no small matter. For the burial took place at the onset of
      Nisan 16. Nothing happend thereafter. For the women. however, the "first
      day" of Shavuoth, Nisan 17, is filled with the promise of the Messianic
      harvest to come as Jesus rose from the dead, as the first fruit.
