Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 10:4


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|.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 10:4


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.

    1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. We will all get tempted by the devil, but if we read the Word and obey God, we will escape the devils wrath. And don't forget to pray too.
