Genesis 44:28 - Convicted to Tell The Truth

And the one went out from me, and I said, Surely he is torn in pieces; and I saw him not since:
During their first visit, the brothers account of Joseph was "one is not" giving the impression that he was dead (Genesis 42:13); and, this also agreed to what Jacob said when he heard that Benjamin had to go to Egypt (Genesis 42:36, 38). Although Judah withholds the part about Joseph's bloody coat of many colors (Genesis 37:33), he does not say his brother is dead, only that he had not seen him since and that his father assumes that he is dead.
