What are all the references to the instances where where Jesus is offered worship in the Bible?

I am raising this question because some of my friends from some specific denomintations believe only Jehavah as the only God. Quoting references where Jesus is being worshipped in the Bible can help me prove that Jesus is God and will help me partially in explaining trinity.

Compare: Should we avoid "refute this"-type questions? (That question is also about Jehovah's Witnesses, incidentally.) – TRiG Aug 21 '12 at 17:37
Premiere Christian radio just had a series of two debates between a Jehovah's witness and a member of a jw outreach organization on the program 'unbelievable'. – aceinthehole Aug 22 '12 at 1:59

First of all - Jesus Christ is Jehovah. He states about him "I am" and when He pronouces it it makes his captors fall to the ground. So the name of God "I am" is the name of Jesus, not only of Father.

At least two fragments I can come up with now:

That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; (Philippians 2, 10)

And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last (Revelation 1, 17, note that unlike angel from the same book, Christ doesn't forbid falling at His feet)

And, when the crippled man was presented to him through the roof, the first thing he said was "I forgive your sins." Only God can forgive sins, and when the religious leaders started to object, he asked, which is easier, to forgive sins or to heal, and then proceeded to heal him too. In other words, he presented himself as God in many ways throughout his ministry. – thursdaysgeek Aug 21 '12 at 18:26
Cogito ergo sum. I refuse to read any special meaning into "I am". – TRiG Sep 4 '12 at 12:12
@thursdaysgeek. He said, "Your sins are forgiven." Nothing about doing it himself. – TRiG Sep 12 '12 at 18:08
@TRiG - the religious leaders considered his statement to be blasphemous, since only God can forgive sins. And if you read more of the statement, he goes on to say "Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” He certainly WAS claiming to do it himself. – thursdaysgeek Sep 12 '12 at 23:35
You might want to add Thomas, who calls Jesus "my Lord and my God". – DJClayworth Nov 29 '14 at 4:40
