comment What's a good word for “offer”, as in “…for offering us eternal life…”?
Not necessarily, but that comes down to more of the Japanese' general lack of understanding of Biblical Christianity, and explaining it (that we need to ask) through evangelism. If this was part of an "alter call" prayer, then "offer" might better be translated as 申し出る or 差し出す, then followed up by the explanation. But if it's part of a "normal" thanksgiving prayer, then it would definitely be 与える. I'll edit my answer later to include this.

If you include the whole sentence for some context, it might help more.

comment Translation to Japanese: “The test will determine which university I will go to.”
I would use 入る instead of 行く. The latter sounds like you're just going to the university to see the campus or something. 入る is more used for "entering" or being admitted to a school.

comment 助詞「も」の意味を教えてください
What are your thoughts? What research have you put into it? What do you think the sentence means as a whole? What is the context? This question will not likely be answered until you edit your question with some more information.

comment Meaning of ~てくれた form?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is an exact duplicate of 〜くれて, what is the meaning and how do people use it?, yet user requests additional explanation. Suggested to seek help in chat.

comment Meaning of ~てくれた form?
Since this question is an exact duplicate of the one you provided, yet you still don't understand it, I suggest you seek an explanation in our JL.SE chat room. A number of our "power users" are usually hanging out in there. As for the 〜んだ, you should make a separate topic for it, although I feel there are several already on this site concerning its different aspects.
