free your will, redeem some knowledge

The paradox of free will and divine knowledge has been answered many times and in many ways, but the Maor Eynayim (On parashath Bo) uproots the problem by explaining that free will comes from knowledge of God. As long as you don't connect to God, you have no free will. Through connecting to God you obtain free will. This is how he explains the problem of why God took away Pharoah's free will? Answer: He never had any free will to begin with. It was only after the redemption from Egypt when Da'ath of HaShem was redeemed along with Bnei Yisrael.
