Since Jesus was both true God and true man, He possessed all the attributes ascribed to God in the Bible, although His humanity could affect the manifestation of those attributes. (For example, God had told Moses that man could not see God's face and live (Exodus 33:20), which obviously did not apply to Jesus in His incarnate form -- although He could also manifest His glory, as He did at the transfiguration (Mark 9:2-3).) 

However, other than that, the gospels record instances of Jesus possessing, proclaiming, and exercising omniscience (John 1:48; Mark 2:8), omnipresence (John 3:13, in which the Greek text (and as worded by the King James Version, as well) indicates that Jesus was also in heaven, even while he was on earth), omnipotence (Mark 4:41; John 11:1-44), and the authority to forgive sins (Mark 2:10), in addition to having always existed (John 8:58) and also being completely sinless (John 8:46).

Because Jesus (in addition to being fully God) was also fully human (except for not sinning or having a fallen nature), He also displayed attributes such as hunger (Luke 4:2), thirst (John 4:7; John 19:28), fatigue (Mark 4:38), and sorrow (John 11:35; Luke 19:41), and could also die for the redemption of humanity.
