One is in "The Sieve and the Sand" when Faber reads from the book of Job. This book of the Old Testament is the story of Job - who is the victim of a dispute between God and Satan, to see if this human, when put through as much difficulty as Satan can manage - will remain faithful to God. Faber encourages Montag to continue doing what he thinks is right, despite the difficulty. In the end, Job does remain faithful - and is greatly rewarded as a result. The unspoken connection here is that Faber believes Montag will feel rewarded in the end.
