I am trying to migrate some code from an earlier version of Joomla and having some major problems.

use Joomla\CMS\Factory;
use Joomla\CMS\Table\Table;

$table = Table::getInstance('Content', 'Table');

$data = array();
$data['title'] = $title;
$data['alias'] = $title_alias;
$data['introtext'] = $overview;
$data['state'] = $is_published;
$data['catid'] = $category_id;
$data['created'] = $release_date;
$data['created_by'] = $created_by;
$data['modified'] = $publish_up;
$data['modified_by'] = $created_by;
$data['publish_up'] = $publish_up;
$data['language'] = $language;
$data['metadesc'] = $overview_meta;

$table->bind($data);
if ($table->check()) {
    $table->store();
    echo "success";
} else {
echo "error";
}

I receive the following error:
Call to a member function bind()

I had this working in Joomla 3.x and have been racking my brain for hours trying to figure this out! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Your call to Table::getinstance() does not return an object. The parameters seem to be wrong.

I got it working....with one MAJOR problem!

Articles are being saved to the database but they are not showing up in the admin backend! 

I am now using:
$table = Table::getInstance('Content', 'JTable');

What would cause the articles not to show up in the backend???
