Yeshu ha-mashi'akh


Explanation:
Yeshu = Jesus, the currently used name in Hebrew (but it may have been Yeshu'a or Yehoshu'a [=Joshua] originally: we simply don't know).

ha- = the

mashi'akh [the 'kh' is pronounced like the 'ch' in the Scottish 'Loch'] = anointed.

I am a native Hebrew speaker, translator and teacher.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Noah: The only caveat I have is that in Hebrew literature, Jesus is called "yeshu ha-notzri," Jesus the Nazarene or from Nazreth. Christians are called "Notzrim," Nazrenes, and Christianity is called "Natzrut," again from the word for Nazrene.
