  It's like a book that has been written and now has been made into a movie...that's how history is playing out.  The book has already been written and the story is unfolding before us.  How else could one explain the tunic of Jesus?  The tunic of Jesus was taken at his crucifixion and the four Roman soldiers who divided his clothing did not want to tear the tunic.  They cast lots for it.  This was a fulfillment of prophecy from Psalm 22, verse 18.  And what a convincing fulfillment...after all, what possible motive would these four Roman soldiers have to fulfill (or even know about) a prophecy concerning Jesus.  Sometimes it is the small things that reveal the large things.  God's story has been written and now is unfolding.  Do you sense your place to respond in faith and bow before the writer?
Psalm 22:18 (written by David after he had escaped King Saul)
They divide my garments among them, And for my clothing they cast lots.
John 19:23
Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments and made four parts, to each soldier a part, and also the tunic.  Now the tunic was without seam, woven from the top in one piece.  They said therefore among themselves, "Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be," that the Scripture might be fulfilled which says: "They divided My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots."
