“I am Hashem, God of Abraham your father, and God of Isaac.”
~ Genesis 28:13

God introduces Himself to Jacob as the God of his forefathers.

It’s instructive to note that as Isaac was alive, this is the only place in the Torah where God connects His name to someone living.

Why?

Because Isaac was so old, he no longer had any physical desires or evil inclination. So from God’s perspective, it’s as if he was already dead.

Your base-drives aren’t random or wicked. They create the tension called life. Don’t escape them, channel them.
