The prophet

Some people see Muhammad as the Prophet and others see Joseph Smith as the Prophet, but the Bible shows that during the days of Jesus of Nazareth, the Jews had seen enough miracles of Jesus and heard enough of His teachings to conclude that He was the Prophet like Moses, 

“Therefore many from the crowd, when they heard this saying, said, ‘Truly this is the Prophet’” (John 7:40).

 
They had heard Jesus promise that He could provide rivers of living water (John 7:37, 38). However, it was not that He would give them drink for the body, but He spoke of the water within for the soul, speaking of the Holy Spirit for those who believe in Him. 
Yes, Jesus is the Prophet like Moses, but even as Moses gave the Israelites water for their mouths, so Jesus gives water for the soul for everyone who believes in Him.
