In the 11th Tablet of the Epic of Gilgamesh, Utnapishtim tells Gilgamesh how he became
immortal, a reward for surviving the flood and offering animal sacrifices to feed the gods.
Read this account carefully, and then write an essay comparing and contrasting this
document with the flood narrative found at Genesis 6:1—9:22. In formulating your thesis
statement/main argument, you might think about some of the following questions: In
what way(s) are the two accounts similar? How do they differ? Is there a relationship
between the two documents? What, from the point of theology, do the two documents tell us
about the communities that produced them?
