1 Corinthians chapter 10 verses 3 - 4, speaking of the children of Israel in the wilderness, says this;

They all ate the same spiritual food and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ. 

The apostle Paul, writing to the Corinthians, explained that the rock from which the children of Israel drank water in the wilderness was Christ who travelled with them and gave them water.  

In the new covenant, Jesus, speaking to the woman at the well in John chapter 4 verse 10, said this;

 “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”

Here, Jesus, in the context of asking for drinking water out of the well, said to the woman that if she had known who it was who was asking her for water, she would have asked Him and He would have given her living water from which she would never have been thirsty again as it says in verse 14; "whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

So Paul says that the rock in the wilderness that continuously supplied water to the children of Israel was in fact Christ. 

Then, the Apostle John, in John chapter 4 verse 10 and verse 14, recorded Jesus, the Christ, the rock of ages,  saying that He could supply living water.

Bless the Lord Jesus who was the spiritual rock who supplied water to the children of Israel in the wilderness and now, is the rock that was struck and  supplies the children of God with spiritual water that wells up to eternal life.
