This might be one of those stupid questions...

Is the New Covenant made with Christ and we partake of it because we are IN Him?
OR
Is the New Covenant made with the church (invisible) and Christ is the mediatior?
OR
Both of the above.

I think your question assumes that only the elect are in the New Covenant. This, I think, would be a Baptist understanding.

The Larger Catechism Q. 31 - With whom was the covenant of grace made?
The covenant of grace was made with Christ as the second Adam, and in him with all the elect as his seed.

That's funny, because I was told by my fellow Baptists, that my question had covenantal assumptions...:um:

Historically that question has been answered differently by different theologians. But as sited above the Westminster divines sided with taking it as with Christ and us in him.

Definitely not a stupid question.
