The Bible Says: "No!"
The following statement from the Bible is clear evident that Jesus was a man.
"Men of Israel, 'listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited to you by God with miracles, wonders and signs which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know" Acts 2:22.
Jesus' favorite designation, in referring to Himself, was the "Son of Man." The Gospels record many times that Jesus used this title the Son of Man for Himself.
For example, when He asked His disciples the question about His identity, He said, "Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?" Matthew 16:13
From above verses we understand that Jesus was a man and the son of man.
The following statement from the Bible supports that Jesus is not God. it says that God is not a man neither son of man.
"God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent." Numbers 23:19
Now my question is if Jesus was a man and the son of man and God is not a man neither the son of man. How could Jesus be God?

You're getting this very confused. Jesus was a hyperbolist. He says that he is the Father, the son and the spirit [the Holy Spirit], where the Trinity came from.
You can't just take pieces of scripture and not read the whole Bible. This is how you get yourself confused. Read further in Matthew 16:14-17.
14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
In the last few passages, Simon has acknowledged that Jesus IS the son of God. While other people at the time have mistaken him as being only a man who can create miracles. Which is false. That is because carnal minded people cannot understand spiritual things.0

What more proof do you need more the scriptures say it all. Only few churches dosn't believe that Jesus is God and all of them who don't are cults and falls churches. Because the first christians in Council Nicea agreed that all believe the same thing. So who doesn't is heretic.
