No, parables are their own genre and they are clearly made-up stories that illustrate one didactic point. Genesis 1-2, Job, Noah, Jonah, these are theological narratives. They are stories designed to tell us true things about our reality. Who we are, who God is, what God expects of us, how we are supposed to relate to God and others, what to do when we suffer, how we will be saved from judgment.
By stories I don't mean, "mere myths" or "mere fiction" or "accounts that aren't true." Or anything that can be "dismissed" as not essential or unimportant. I don't think we need to insist Adam and Eve or Jonah or Job or Noah were not "real people" or that their stories are not histories of some form. But I think the historicity and factuality of the events of their lives is secondary to the deeper truths we are supposed to grab hold of in hearing their stories. Stories are pictures that allow us to grasp things that are ethereal and difficult to express. I think we live in a culture that is obsessed with facts, so we tend to conflate truth with facts, but there are other ways to express truth than with facts. Most wisdom literature from other cultures expresses the deepest truths and philosophy using something other than lists of facts, so it's not weird that Israel would too.
