What exactly is blocking voltage in relation with Metal-semiconductor junction diodes? Is it related to breakdown voltage?

Both are same at sometime like when reverse voltage is given to diode then and its exceeds the breakdown level then both are same but when diode is forward biased and it tries to reach threshold value until then its only blocking voltage.
