The Benefits and Penalties of Speaking for or Against Jesus, Part 1 (Luke 12:8-10)

In this "first pass" of these 3 related verses, we explain why they are related, and then understand who Jesus is talking about. Is Jesus referring to believers (who lose benefit or even salvation), or unbelievers (who never have believed)?
