John 17:11 - although I don't know if you count this as a public declaration, since Jesus was praying privately in the garden of Gethsemane at the time.

Huh? Clearly? Throughout?
I think it is more clear that Jesus says that he is God's son. God says that Jesus is His son. EVERYONE says that Jesus is God's son. Jesus even says that there are things that neither the angels nor he know, only the father knows.

" I am" would be incorrect english," I be" sounds more like slang.

Shemot/exodus - Chapter 3
14. God said to Moses, "Ehyeh asher ehyeh (I will be what I will be)," and He said, "So shall you say to the children of Israel, 'Ehyeh (I will be) has sent me to you.'

How many times did Jesus allegedly utter "...I AM" as his name?
