“And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.”
King James Version (KJV)
10:4 And all drank the same spiritual drink - Typical of Christ, and of that cup which we drink. For they drank out of the spiritual or mysterious rock, the wonderful streams of which followed them in their several journeyings, for many years, through the wilderness. And that rock was a manifest type of Christ - The Rock of Eternity, from whom his people derive those streams of blessings which follow them through all this wilderness. #Exod 17:6|.
1Co 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink. The water supernaturally supplied (Ex 17:6 Nu 20:11) called "spiritual", for the same reason. That spiritual Rock that followed them. The waters at Rephidim (Ex 17:1-6) and Kadesh (Nu 20:1-12) gushed from a rock. The rock did not itself supply them, but the power behind, the "spiritual Rock", even Christ. The rock of Rephidim did not follow them, but the "spiritual Rock" did, and supplied their necessities whenever they were in need. As the rock of Rephidim became a fountain, so Christ is the fountain of living waters to the world.
