After essentially a year of studying this and praying and getting answers from God to my prayers I think I know what the correct interpretation of Genesis 1-11 is. I think that William Lane Craig is correct in calling Genesis 1-11 Mytho-History. I think that all of the events described within are real local historical events concerning real people in the ancient Near East but cloaked in symbolism, hyperbole, literary flair, and theological messaging.
I think that the characters are both real and archetypal and that though the events are local the theological points being made in the depiction of the events are universal. As for who Adam and Eve were as real historical people, I think they were the oldest common ancestors of the nations listed in the Table of Nations, the peoples of the Eastern Mediterranean, being hyperbolically mythologized as the first man and woman, and they lived in the Persian Gulf Oasis and ruined their easy life in the Garden (which was a paradise for hunter-gatherers like them) by experimenting with agriculture rather than living off the bounty of the Oasis. Their ruining of their hunter-gatherer lifestyle in that ancient Gulf Paradise is conflated with mankind as a whole’s fall from grace by choosing to live by our own definitions of Good and Evil rather than God’s. As I said, both historical and archetypal to humanity as a whole.
This is why Exodus and the New Testament referred to these events as literal because they happened, however, in their referencing these events they are interacting with them in the same way they were written in that halfway point between symbolism, theology, and history. I don’t think that ancient peoples would’ve cared about the literalness of these events and were more concerned with what these events meant theologically. If anyone has any questions regarding this feel free to ask. I think that this reconciles everything rather neatly. When I asked God about this he told me, “You are on the right track.”
