"Is Job is a picture of the Jews in the tribulation?"


Some years back I had heard someone say that perhaps the book of Job is a picture of the Jews in the tribulation.
Is there anything to that?
They pointed out that Job suffers a type of the time of Jacob's trouble.
That the book is 42 chapters, like the 42 months of the great tribulation.
That it ends up showing that Job, and man in general, is powerless against leviathan, the great dragon.
That only the LORD can deliver Job out of his hand, and to turn his captivity.
That Job ends up blessed double, afterwards.
There were other comparisons brought up, that I have forgotten by now.
Is there anything to this, or was someone way over-reaching, looking for types and pictures in the old testament?
