Sometimes I think that God put pieces of history in the books to help people see that these were real events, not just made up stories. You would think that if these gospels were mere fiction that they would have left out something so silly as this, but this is no mere story. These things happened, and perhaps this element was added to help us remember that these all were real people writting about what they saw and heard. So that being said, there may still be further significance to this, but this was my initial impression when I read your question.

Peace and Love,
