comment Reference to Moshiach in Proverbs Chapter 8?
The verses you mention are talking with the anthropormiphised voice of wisdom and understanding, or Torah and Mitzvot. Can you explain better in your question. edit the question why you think it's related to the messiah?

comment How can I respond to challenges to the Kuzari argument for the transmission of Torah from Sinai?
Just a minor quibble. Even though this is called the Kuzari argument, it doesn't actually appear in the Kuzari. However it is mentioned by R. Saadya Gaon, in relation to the miracle of the Manna.

comment What are all the Mekorot for Matan Torah
Yes, Har sinai, or the giving of the Torah/10 commandments. If it mentions that place/time for any reason, I'd like to know about that source.

comment To what extent would a 17th-century observant Jew purposefully violate Halacha to save lives?
If you know for a fact that an action will save lives, then time is not a factor. The problem is knowing it is a fact and that it can't be done later or in another halachically allowed manner. During world war 2 this was done often, for people who would only be saved months later.

Better title for the question.

comment Who suggests that Creation Ex nihilo was only a small point and light?
This actually comes from a medieval debate about the nature of the creation of the world. I can't remember if it's Ramban, Rambam, Rashbam or Raavad who suggests this explanation. Otherwise I'd give an answer.
