Wholly God and Wholly Man...
Is a bumper sticker.

... the official understanding of the nature of Jesus...
Understanding isn't official. Dogma is official.

... the union of the nature of God who begot Him, with the human nature of His mother.
That would be 50-50, not 100-100.

The "regarded as an authority" part is pretty iffy. Who's doing the regarding?
I would think that the definition means that a historian is regarded as an authority by other historians. Wright may only be regarded as an authority by people who share his religious views.
