Is there enough evidence to convict Jesus as God?

The more I have invested in a way of thinking, the more it takes to change my thinking about it. I believed I was not a sinner. It took 10 years of horrific psychic pain to change my mind. Now I know my own depravity, the evil I am capable of.

I once did not believe Jesus is God. Is there enough evidence for me to change my mind?

Jesus predicted his own death and resurrection, and he did it!

Jesus told the religious leaders exactly when they would know Jesus is God (When he is “lifted up.”)

When Thomas holds Jesus, after Jesus’ resurrection, Thomas refers to Jesus as God, and Jesus does not stop him; Jesus accepts Thomas’ worship of Himself as God.

The blind man, whose eyes were opened, worshipped Jesus and Jesus accepted the worship as God.

Jesus used God’s own name of God (I AM) for Jesus:
John 8:58 NASB95
58 Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.”
Jesus is using God’s name for God to refer to himself as God. “I am” or “εἰμί” in Greek is found in Exodus 3:14 as “ehyeh” the Hebrew equivalent. Jesus is saying of himself, in my opinion, “I AM WHO I AM” or “I am the Father.”

Jesus also said, “I and the Father are one” or “one essence.” John 10:30 NASB95.

Jesus claims to have existed before he himself was born.

The “Word” (Logos or Jesus) was God. John 1:1. John calls Jesus God.

All that was created came through Him. John 1:3 Obviously, He did not create himself.  Therefore, he could not have been created.

That’s all I can think of right now. I invite you to contribute.
Please help me out by giving me more examples in the Comments.

Also, is there anything in the Bible that says Jesus is not God? Please let me know that too, in the Comments.

Thank you!
