Galations 4 24 says you have to take it figuratively (in NIV)
and NKJV says
....which things are ***symbolic***. ...

It even tells us to read it a different way.
And dont pay no nevermind to the allegory, metaphor, simile, etiology, yada yada, not to mention the errors omissions contradictions and obfuscations.
