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?
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 2017 – Or in the the current year we are in)
- Add 52 (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 2018, not your current age, so if you haven’t had your birthday yet, put how old you will be on your birthday in 2018.
There are 66 books and I will be 42 years old in 2018. So the answer now is 24. I then add 52 to that number and I get 76. I was born in 1976.
We will do the same for my daughter. There are 66 books, she will turn 20 in 2018. That would give you 46. You then ad 52. That would give 98. She was born in 1998.
I wanted to try this. How about someone 2 years old or so. Take 66 minus 2. That is 64. We add 52 and get 115. So now you see we have a three digit number instead of a two digit. But i you think about it, in 2018 someone two years old would be be born in 2016. If you notice the number 116, it has 16 in it. So you would only use the last two digits in that case.
Did this work for you?
What to add in following years
In 2019 you would need to change the number you add. For example in 2019, you would need to add 53 to get the same number.
- 2016 (Add 50)
- 2017 (Add 51)
- 2018 (Add 52)
- 2019 (add 53)
- 2020 (add 54)
- 2021 (add 55)
I redid the graphic that I saw too. Not to mention, this Graphic was updated for current year too. Plus a printable version too!
