Find Your Birth Year using the Number of Books in the Bible
First of all you must know the total number books of the Bible. If you do not know the answer to that, then the answer is 66.
Steps to follow
- Take the number of the books of Bible.
- Subtract your age (the age that you will be in 2020 – Or in the the current year we are in)
- Add 53 (this will change based on the year, see below)
- Did you get the year you were born in?
One thing to note, I noticed it must be the age you will be in 2020, not your current age, so if you haven’t had your birthday yet, put how old you will be on your birthday in 2020.Find Your Birth Year using the Number of Book in the Bible – A graphic I saw on Facebook and it worked for me, does it work for you?

There are 66 books and I will be 44 years old in 2020. So the answer now is 22. I then add 54 to that number and I get 76. I was born in 1976.
I wanted to try this. How about someone 2 years old or so. Take 66 minus 2. That is 64. We add 54 and get 118. So now you see we have a three digit number instead of a two digit. But if you think about it, in 2020 someone two years old would be be born in 2018. If you notice the number 118, it has 18 in it. So you would only use the last two digits in that case. (Those 0 to 19 or anyone that gets three digits.)
Did this work for you?
What to add in following years
In 2020, you would need to change the number you add. For example in 2020, you would need to add 54 to get the same number.
- 2021 (add 55)
- 2022 (Add 56)
- 2023 (Add 57)
- 2024 (Add 58)
- 2025 (add 59)
