Thank you for sharing your insight into the name Yitzchak. You have provided myself, and those with whom I will share, a greater insight into the connection between the Father and Son - Abraham and Issac, and YHVH's love for us, and our responsive love for Him. You have also helped me to understand something that I had not been able to wrap my mind around, as related to the number of years that Israel would be in slavery/bondage in Egypt. You mentioned that instead of it being 400 years, it was shortened to 210 years, even as Issac's (Yitzchak's) name was slightly changed, from the gematria of 300 to 90. Could you help me with any sources that reference his name change and the time in Egypt from 400 to 210 years? I thank you in advance!
