hamoshia, which is the savior, this is the name that was given to Jesus in the bible, or nosse habsora-נושא הבשורהwhich is the one who brings the message, but i guess it depends on the context

In the attached link (100 names for Jesus) I only found one mention of the word blessed: Blessed and only Ruler (1 Tim. 6:15)
Therefore, I would say המבורך, which is "the blessed one" or one who is blessed.
Then again, if "the blessing" relates to the action of blessing others, then הברכה will my choice.

Reference: mevurach מבורך = blessed

Reference information:
Names, Titles and Characters of Jesus Christ

The Christ, the Son of the Blessed . Mar 14:61
there is no quotation or other symbol of Christ himself as a blessing only as the blessed God's son

Symbolic Language used in the Old and New Testaments


Note added at 3 days5 hrs (2008-11-10 13:57:12 GMT)

as a concept:
1) Christ is the Measure of Christian Standing and Blessing. Together with Christ. (Ephesisans)

2) Christ coming to and for the Church, and her Eternal Blessedness. (Thesalonians I)

Key Thoughts of the New Testament Books

Therefore is quite unclear on differentiating between blessed and blessing// mevurach or bracha accordingly
