"But," said Moses to God, “when I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ if they ask me, ’ What is his name?’ what am I to tell them?“
God replied, " I am who am.” Then he added, " This is what you shall tell the Israelites: I AM sent me to you.”
Then, the following verse (15) says the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham…has sent me to you.
Why did God not just say Yahweh is my name? Did God try to imply that He is in everything (creator) and in everyone (made in His image and likeness?)
Today, if you asked someone, “Who said that or who told you?” and they said , “I AM did!” wouldn’t you say, “You did?”:shrug:
This always confused me. Be nice:)
