Christ and the Spirit

In the Gospel of John 7 we read that Jesus stood up in the temple and cried “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” This is typically taken to mean that the believers will have streams of living water flow from them. But we can also interpret the text differently so that it refers to Christ from whom the living waters flow. This is more consistent with what the Scriptures say elsewhere abou the relationship between Christ and the Spirit.
