Do 20th Century RB's see the Abrahamic Covenant as two covenants; physical and spiritual, like the 1689 Federalist do? If not how do they differ on this?

My understanding is the *"20th century" RBs view the Abrahamic covenant as one covenant similarly to the way Presbyterians do. In contrast to the 17th century Baptist view that the Covenant of Grace was revealed with the Old covenant and inaugurated with the New Covenant, the 17th century Presbyterians and 20th century Baptists assert the Covenant of Grace was administered with two different covenants - the Old Covenant and the New Covenant.

*Not all modern RBs hold the "20th century view" - I lean towards the 17th century view; and not all 17th century Baptists necessarily subscribed to the 17th century view.
