“The author represents Christ as a portion of heaven come down to earth. In His voice we hear a heavenly voice, not a voice of earth. . . . Note that the author lays great stress on the words yet once more; the shaking is one that cannot be repeated; it is the final shaking, and therefore it represents the final transformation of the whole world or universe. The author further says that this final shaking signifies the passing away of all things that were made and therefore can be shaken, in order that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.” (Geerhardus Vos, The Teaching of the Epistle to the Hebrews, p. 87).
“The inheritance of the promised land of the new earth is the author’s [of Hebrews] irreducible summary of what true believers will receive at the eschaton. . . . This final inheritance will be indestructible (12:27–-28) and eternal.” (G. K. Beale, A New Testament Biblical Theology, p. 145).
