Shemot 3:14 speaks about one of the name of Hashem called Eh-yeh Asher Eh-yeh.

How does this name go along with the redemtion from egypt? Why specifically this name is used?

Berachot 9b:

אהיה אשר אהיה אמר לו הקדוש ברוך הוא למשה לך אמור להם לישראל אני הייתי עמכם בשעבוד זה ואני אהיה עמכם בשעבוד מלכיות

[The name] Eh-yeh Asher Eh-yeh (lit. I will be that I will be): Said the Holy One (Blessed be He) to Moshe, “Go tell Israel, ‘I was with you in this enslavement, and I will be with you in the enslavements of the kingdoms [in the future]’”.

This approach is also quoted by Rashi to Shemot 3:14.

  • This quote from Berachot doesn't really answer what is being asked. It's only giving a slight insight into what that particular name relates to. You really need to be addressing Shemot 3:13-16. Each one of these 4 posukim provides the answer to this question fully. Apr 4 '19 at 16:38

  • @RhHaokip If your comment was addressed at YaacovDeane you need to include his name, otherwise he may not see it
