The 3 Questions Christians should know

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning.  Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.  The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.-John1:1-5

These are the opening verses in the gospel according to Saint John, the beloved disciple of Christ. The way the author begins his opening words are very poetic and beautiful. It starts with the words 'In the beginning' which are coincidentally the opening words of the Bible in the book of Genesis.
This is one of the foundational verses used in the New Testament to refer to the deity of Christ. There are three questions that many Christians often encounter at some point of time and seek to find answers.

The 3 Questions
1. Is Jesus  God or the Son of God?
(Should a person pray to Jesus or God)
2. Where was Jesus in the times of the Old testament?
(Did Jesus,the 'Son' only came into existence in the times of the New testament)
3. Did Jesus ever refer to Himself as being 'God'?
