Exodus 6:3, How was their relationship different?

Question: V3 in today's reading refers to patriarchs as appearing to them as God Almighty but by His name Lord, I was not known to them. What was the difference? How was their relationship different from Moses with God. Answer: This verse has been widely discussed and debated because there are various opinions about what exactly God means. The difference between the Hebrew words is clear, God Almighty is El Shaddai, LORD is YHWH or Yahweh. God seems to be saying that He is revealing Himself in a new way to Moses and the Children of Israel. The main difference in the relationship that I see is that God is now working with a nation, and not individuals. -PJ
