Chalcedonian Creed (A. D. 451)

This creed established that Jesus has two natures, divine and human, consolidated in one person. This creed was from the Fourth Ecumenical Council, held at Chalcedon, in 451, as a response to the heretical aspect concerning the nature of Christ.

We, then, following the holy Fathers, all with one consent, teach men to confess one and the same Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, the same perfect in Godhead and also perfect in manhood; truly God and truly man, of a reasonable [rational] soul and body; consubstantial [co-essential] with the Father according to the Godhead, and consubstantial with us according to the Manhood; in all things like unto us, without sin; begotten before all ages of the Father according to the Godhead, and in these latter days, for us and for our salvation, born of the Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, according to the Manhood; one and the same Christ, Son, Lord, only begotten, to be acknowledged in two natures, inconfusedly, unchangeably, indivisibly, inseparably; the distinction of natures being by no means taken away by the union, but rather the property of each nature being preserved, and concurring in one Person and one Subsistence, not parted or divided into two persons, but one and the same Son, and only begotten, God the Word, the Lord Jesus Christ; as the prophets from the beginning [have declared] concerning Him, and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself has taught us, and the Creed of the holy Fathers has handed down to us.

Jesus is 100% man and 100% God also known as the Hypostatic Union. These miracles attest to that. This was just a partial list of the pages of the Bible, and I would strongly suggest you read all of the Gospel and pray to God that the Holy Spirit opens your heart and mind to seeing the truth.
