Parsha "And Moshe said to Hashem, ‘Behold I come to the children of Israel, and I say to them, ‘The G-d of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they will respond to me, 'What is His name?' what shall I say to them?’ Hashem said to Moses, ‘I will be what I will be,’ and He said, ‘So shall you say to the children of Israel, ‘I will be’ has sent me to you.'" (Beraishis 3:13-14)

In the verses above, we find Moshe Rabbeinu concerned that Klal Yisroel may not know Hashem’s name? Why was Moshe concerned? Surely Klal Yisroel would know the name (or names) of Hashem that their ancestors had passed down to them? Furthermore, if “I will be what I will be” is a new Name of Hashem, how would Klal Yisroel have even known to inquire about a new Name?...
