Where did CHRIST call Himself God?

Culturally, stating that the Christ is the Son of God IS saying He was God.
John 5:18

For this reason they tried all the more to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.

John 10:33

The Jews answered Him, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God.”

John 19:77

The Jews answered him, “We have a law, and by that law He ought to die because He made Himself out to be the Son of God.”

The law in question thought to be the one about blaspheming the name of the Lord.

Leviticus 24:16

‘Moreover, the one who blasphemes the name of the LORD shall surely be put to death; all the congregation shall certainly stone him. The alien as well as the native, when he blasphemes the Name, shall be put to death.

Matthew 26:63-66

63 But Jesus kept silent And the high priest said to Him, “I adjure You by the living God, that You tell us whether You are the Christ, the Son of God.”  64 Jesus said to him, “You have said it yourself; nevertheless I tell you, hereafter you will see THE SON OF MAN SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF POWER, and COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN.”  65 Then the high priest tore his robes and said, “He has blasphemed! What further need do we have of witnesses? Behold, you have now heard the blasphemy;  66 what do you think?” They answered, “He deserves death!”

Luke 22:67-71

67 “If You are the Christ, tell us.” But He said to them, “If I tell you, you will not believe; 68 and if I ask a question, you will not answer.  69 “But from now on THE SON OF MAN WILL BE SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND of the power OF GOD.”  70 And they all said, “Are You the Son of God, then?” And He said to them, “Yes, I am.”  71 Then they said, “What further need do we have of testimony? For we have heard it ourselves from His own mouth.”
