I'm only going to answer question 5. John 3:16 "For God so loved the WORLD he gave his only begotten (not made) son that who ever believes in Him will not die but have eternal life." That means he wasn't sent just for the Jews. Thats why he didn't stay in Jewish areas only but went out seeking non-jewish people, known as Gentiles, kind of like infidel. He did this for humanity, though it did not and does not deserve it. The Isaac's sacrifice of his son was a forerunner of what God was going to do later, only God wasn't going to spare His own son. A price for human sin was needed. No human being is righteous, no human would do. God could not find even one person. So he became a person, lived the righous life required, for God is holy and unholiness cannot be overlooked; to commit one sin makes you unholy. One life for all.

Jesus spoke of himself as God because he is God. John 1:1 "In the begining was the word and the word was with God and the word was God" Refering back to Genesis when all things were created at the word of God.
