Job and Gilgamesh

There are some features that the "Book of Job" and "The Epic of Gilgamesh" have .First of all the searching of inmortality . Gilgamesh seeks personal inmortality and Job solicits God's pomise of heavenly reward.Then the human vulnerability tested by superhuman forces and finally the resignation that both of them have .They are only  common human beings governed by God

Hebrew Books

Both Gilgamesh an Job had a question or doubt about life after death. For instance, Job asked "Can the dead come back to life" and Gilgamesh said,... I thought my friend would come back because my weeping..., and other example, " I have a desire to question Utnapishtim concerning the living and the dead".

Job and Gilgamesh similarities.

In my opinion, the stories of Gilgamesh and Job are similar in many aspects. First of all, both stories reflect the pessimistic view of the mesopotamian region, place where they originated. Another similarity is the fact that Gilgamesh and Job are tested by their Gods. Gilgamesh loses his most dear friend and Job loses not only his family, but also his status and possessions. In addition to this, both men accept the will of the Gods and respect it and do not expect rational answers. They accept that suffering and misfortune are part of human life. Finally, they realize how fragile humans are and for that reason they do not complain when they do not obtain what they were looking for. They both remain fathful to the Gods will.

Job and Gilgamesh

Both characters, Job and Gilgamesh were blessed by their gods. Gilgamesh was two-third god and one-third human, blesses with courage and beauty. While Job was prosperous and blessed with health and family. But at the same time they were tested by their gods and all they had were taken away from them and they had to face suffering.

Shared feature

I believe that both stories share the idea of loss and quest. Gilgamesh and Job lose a friend and children and heatlh respectively. Because of that they start a quest for answers and both end up living what fate had prepared for them and accepting it as it is.

Gilgamesh and Job

I think that both of them were divested of their family because Job lost his sons who were his family.And Gilgamesh lost his frend who was as his family.Moreover, Job and Gilgamish were tested by their god so both were punished and they suffered a lot.They wanted to recover the life that they had before they were tested by their god but both of them failed.Furthermore, Gilgamesh looked for the inmortality whereas Job solicited god`s promise of heavenly reward.

Both characters, Job and gilgamesh, are persistent. Gilgamesh do everything in his journey, although it is difficult, to find Utnapishtim; and Job persist in his beliefs of God and is detremined to respect God

Gilgamesh and Job

What Gilgamesh and Job have in common is suffering. Both characters undergo important loss in therir lives. In the epic of Gilgamesh when his friend Endiku is dead. In the book of Job, Job  loses his possessions, his sons and daughters and his health. He questioned God why right people has to suffer.

everlasting life

one feature in common in both stories is that Job and Gilgamesh searched for inmortality but this "everlasting life" had a different meaning for them. While Gilgamesh had to overcome some difficulties in order to achieve inmortality(he undertook a long and hazzardous journey to met Utnapishtim, who guided him to to the plant that miracousky restores last youth), Job was tested by the loss of his family, health and possessions, proved his loyalty and faith in God.In spite of he knew he was going to die, he  knew he would find inmortality through his descendants.

A feature

I consider that SUFFERING is one the most important feature that both stories "the book of Job" and "the epic of Gilgamesh" have in common.They suffered for the loss of people that were important for them.Job suffered for the dead of his sons and daughters.Gilgamesh suffered for his bosom companion.(Endiku)
