Is there a consensus on what portions of the Talmud/Torah very observant Jews are supposed to take literally?

For example, do orthodox Jews take Genesis and the parting of the Red Sea literally?

I know the 20th/21st century Catholic church has stopped requiring taking the Genesis creation story literally, but I believe Catholics are still required to believe they are literally eating the body of Jesus when they take communion (even though the thought probably crosses very few Catholics’ minds when they participate in the ritual). Even if Judaism doesn’t have a similar central authority, is there a consensus?
