Is the story of Jesus' life handled differently in the Catholic tradition vs the Protestant tradition in regards to
considering it a myth? historicity within the Bible?

The belief of Jesus's life (and death, and resurrection) NOT being a myth is the defining feature of ANY christian.
If Jesus didn't really live, die, and live again, then we aren't really saved. If Christ isn't real, then believing in Him is absurd and a christian faith is useless.
I could, however, understand arguments for parts of Jesus's ministry here on earth as myth (transfiguration, parts of His baptism, etc), but there is a fine line between symbolism, parable, and myth.
