Sorry, Jim

Most on this list reject Jewish understandings and teachings of the 
Torah, including Oral Torah, Commentaries, Zohar, etc., which also 
drew on grammar and linguistics and the position of letters in words 
for their teachings, so we're even.

And they all agree that Ehyeh is "I will be"


I'm only speaking for myself- but when I see such dismissive 
statements as "you 'experts'" I have a tendency, in my mind, to 
believe that the poser of any attendent "question" 1- will not accept 
any answer as their preconceptions are entrenched; and 2- believes 
that anyone with "expertise" in a field is no better informed than 
the uninformed reader of various and sundry crackpot websites.  Thus, 
all that said, any answer offered will not be accepted and so I leave 
it to more patient others to offer what will inevitably be rejected
