The Bible myth has informed Western Civilization since it began, although relatively few of the population are aware of it.
According to the myth God created the world and made it good. But the world fell; it went bad. But in the "right time" it was/is/will be redeemed.
Having this information in hand gives a great deal more meaning to the Bible than it would otherwise have, especially if you give it a mythopoeic reading.
There are several temporal episodes of the myth. God created Abraham's family good, but it fell (in particular when Joseph's brothers threw him in the pit). Consequence: 400 years of slavery in Egypt. Then God redeemed Israel using the deliverer, Moses- the original archetype.
Again they fell and went to other captivities, notably to Babylon, God redeemed Israel using the deliverer, Cyrus.
Once again they fell into captivity-- to Rome. This time God redeemed the world using the Saviour.
Since then people have been created good, but soon become something less. God redeems us using the Saviour.
These are temporal manifestations of the myth, but it also exists outside of time.
The good creation, the fall, the redemption may be going on simultaneously. (Paul said I die daily, and most of us should be able to see at least one death in ourselves.) We are created anew time and time again, maybe every morning. And we miss the mark repeatedly, over and over, and the grace of God redeems us and renews us.
William Blake's myth is a recreation of the above, which is why he is such a fountain of Bible interpretation.
Now in our time Walter Wink has written books interpreting the myth to the slowest of us.
His "fall" is called the 'domination system'-- in which we all live. Jesus redeems it (and us) day by day, as we allow him to.
Romans 13:11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we first believed.
