That's much like today, but in today's world it's done on a much larger scale.

Thanks for the answers.
I am not tempting anybody.
But would any of us, with the clues that we have in the Old Testament, would guess what Jesus would become?
As for me, The answer is NO.
Sometimes, I wonder what Jesus Christ was saying to the disciples of Emmaus, explaining to them how the Messiah had to suffer and it was in the Scriptures.
I sincerely can hardly see anything. Of course there are some verses here and there (Isaiah..), but in the whole it is very, very hard (for me!) to see.
