Acts 2:1
#5
Hey Dawid,

Have you read Tobit 2:1 ?

Quote:Thus under King Esarhaddon I returned to my home, and my wife Anna and my son Tobiah were restored to me. Then on our festival of Pentecost, the feast of Weeks, a fine dinner was prepared for me, and I reclined to eat.

This was an Aramaic book written by Jews in Nineveh, Assyria. As you can see, the word "Pentecost" is used there. Perhaps this was a Greek loan-word in Jewish Aramaic before the NT was written?

Aramaic fragments of Tobit were also found in Qumran.

Just a thought....

Also see 2Maccabees 12:32, and I also believe Josephus used the word Pentecost as well....and he of course was contemporary with the NT.
