I'm sure Fr. Simon or Fr. Peter can answer more thoroughly, but as far as I can, here we go:
1. It us usually only Oriental Orthodox.
2. The BOC is very happy to come under the jurisdiction of the ancient Apostolic See of Alexandria, and I can't see why we'd want to change that. Orthodoxy works on the Ignatian model, and where ever the bishop is, there is the church.
3. Quite a distance, probably Yorkshire
4. Same as in any Eastern Orthodox bible.
In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10)
