Job
The Book of Job and the Epic of Gilgamesh have one feature in common, they both question the idea of life after death. Job asks God for a heavenly reward when he says "Can the dead come back to life? - day after day of my service, I should be waiting for my relief to come". Gilgamesh's search for inmortality is noticeable when he says to Utnapishtim "...I wish to question you concerning the living and the dead, how shall I find the life for which I am searching?" . We can also see his lack of knowledge about the life after death "What my brother is now, that shall I be when I am dead".

THE BOOK OF JOB VS THE EPIC OF GILGAMESH

In my opinion , both THE BOOK OF JOB and THE EPIC OF GILGAMESH share similar ideas.
Fristly Job and Gilgamesh were blessed by their gods. For instance, the 1st one was prosperous and blessed with his family and things, and the 2nd one was blessed with courage and beauty, besides he was two-third god and one-third human.
Another similar idea is suffering, since the Epic of Gilgamesh and the Book of Job describe human misfortune and suffering.

The Book of Job and The Epic of Gilgamesh: HUMAN SUFFERING.

The Book of Job and The Epic of Gilgamesh depict human suffering. Both texts explain a different way of suffering. The Epic of Gilgamesh describes that suffering is caused by death. The Book of Job describes how suffering is caused by sickness, loss of possessions, or loved ones. The idea of suffering  illustrates the fragility  or vulnerability of humankind and the presence of a higher power ( divine power) which is immense since human beings cannot expect rational explanations of the divine will.

Hebrew Books
At the beginning one of the features is that both of them lost their loved ones. Gilgamesh suffered the lost of his dearest friend Enkidu because of refusing the love of Ishtar, a capricious goddess. Job loses his family plus his possessions and health because his faith towards an omnipotent and merciful God is tested.

Gilgamesh & Job

Both stories “Epic of Gilgamesh” and “The Book of Job”share the same point. Their Gods tested them placing obstacles in their paths. The protagonists suffer different difficult situations like lose what they treasure the most. In the case of Job, he lost his family, health and personal possessions. And in the case of Gilgamesh, he lost his best friend.

Humankind fate

   Both the "Book of Job" and "The Epic of Gilgamesh" coincide on giving humankind an inevitable fate which is death. Concerning "The Epic of Gilgamesh", he is told by Utnapishtim and realizes that there is no permanence, no immortality for humans. They are born and they die. As regards "The Book of Job", death is a feature of humans that Job knows but strongly questions God about it.

gilgamesh vs job

The Epic of Gilgamesh and the Book of Job both describe human suffering. The Epic of Gilgamesh describes that suffering is caused by death. The Book of Job describes how suffering is caused by sickness, loss of possessions, or loved ones. Gilgamesh tells us that suffering happens because he loved Enkidu. After the serpent killed Enkidu, Gilgamesh suffered tremendously. This is also seen in The Book of Job. To Job, suffering happens because of God testing us. A satan questioned the following's of God's people.

Human feelings.

Comparing the Book of Job and The Epic of Gilgamesh, I think that the most overstanding feature is that they both experience human feelings. They both suffer a lot, Gilgamesh losses his friend Enkidu and Job losses his family and all his belongings.
