Greek accuracy in the NT

I'm not sure biblical translators "get it right" oftentimes, in translating the NT scriptures; e.g., the following in Greek: πάντες ὅσοι πρὸ ἐμοῦ ἦλθον κλέπται εἰσὶν καὶ λῃσταί ἀλλ' οὐκ ἤκουσαν αὐτῶν τὰ πρόβατα

Relationship between adelphos and parthenios?

Civilization and Culture of the Greeks and Romans



Relationship between adelphos and parthenios?
